More information:

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Drupal, a fully-featured content management framework: Cross-site request forgery, insecure pseudo random number generation, code execution, incorrect security token validation and cross-site scripting.

In order to avoid the remote code execution vulnerability, it is recommended to create a .htaccess file (or an equivalent configuration directive in case you are not using Apache to serve your Drupal sites) in each of your sites' files directories (both public and private, in case you have both configured).

Please refer to the NEWS file provided with this update and the upstream advisory at for further information.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 7.14-2+deb7u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 7.24-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
