Package : drupal
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2006-1225 CVE-2006-1226 CVE-2006-1227 CVE-2006-1228

The Drupal Security Team discovered several vulnerabilities in Drupal,
a fully-featured content management and discussion engine. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


Due to missing input sanitising a remote attacker could inject
headers of outgoing e-mail messages and use Drupal as a spam


Missing input sanity checks allows attackers to inject arbitrary
web script or HTML.


Menu items created with the menu.module lacked access control for,
which might allow remote attackers to access administrator pages.


Markus Petrux discovered a bug in the session fixation which may
allow remote attackers to gain Drupal user privileges.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain Drupal packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.3-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.8-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
