More information:

Several security related problems have been discovered in drupal, a fully-featured content management/discussion engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

  • CVE-2005-3973

    Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

  • CVE-2005-3974

    When running on PHP5, Drupal does not correctly enforce user privileges, which allows remote attackers to bypass the "access user profiles" permission.

  • CVE-2005-3975

    An interpretation conflict allows remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via HTML in a file with a GIF or JPEG file extension.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 4.5.3-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 4.5.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (sarge)
