DSA-3075-1 drupal7 -- security update
- Date Reported:
- 20 Nov 2014
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-9015, CVE-2014-9016.
- More information:
Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Drupal, a fully-featured content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
Aaron Averill discovered that a specially crafted request can give a user access to another user's session, allowing an attacker to hijack a random session.
Michael Cullum, Javier Nieto and Andres Rojas Guerrero discovered that the password hashing API allows an attacker to send specially crafted requests resulting in CPU and memory exhaustion. This may lead to the site becoming unavailable or unresponsive (denial of service).
Custom configured session.inc and password.inc need to be audited as well to verify if they are prone to these vulnerabilities. More information can be found in the upstream advisory at https://www.drupal.org/SA-CORE-2014-006
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 7.14-2+deb7u8.
We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
