Date Reminder - Moderately critical - Access bypass - SA-CONTRIB-2018-076

Project:         Date Reminder
Date:            2018-November-28
Security risk:   Moderately critical 10/25 
TD:              Default
Vulnerability:   Access bypass


This module allows registered users to request email reminders to be sent at a
specified time before an event.

The module doesn't sufficiently check access to nodes, allowing a user to set a
reminder on a node that the user shouldn't be able to access.

This can be mitigated with configuring DateReminder with Reminder Display:
"Fieldset within a node" disables the potential exploit.


Install the latest version:

  o If you use the Date Reminder module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Date
    Reminder 7.x-1.15

Also see the Date Reminder project page.
