- --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT--------------------

- ------------SA-2008-067 - DRUPAL CORE - MULTIPLE VULNERABILITIES------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-067

  * Project: Drupal core

  * Versions: 5.x and 6.x

  * Date: 2008-October-22

  * Security risk: Less Critical

  * Exploitable from: Local/Remote

  * Vulnerability: Multiple vulnerabilities

- ------------DESCRIPTION------------

Multiple vulnerabilities and weaknesses were discovered in Drupal.

- ------------FILE INCLUSION------------

On a server configured for IP-based virtual hosts, Drupal may be caused to
include and execute specifically named files outside of its root directory. 

This bug affects both Drupal 5 and Drupal 6.

- ------------CROSS SITE SCRIPTING------------

The title of book pages is not always properly escaped, enabling users with the
"create book content" permission or the permission to edit any node in the book
hierarchy to insert arbitrary HTML and script code into pages. Such a Cross site
scripting [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting ] attack may lead
to the attacker gaining administrator access.

This bug affects Drupal 6.

- ------------VERSIONS AFFECTED------------

  * Drupal 5.x before version 5.12

  * Drupal 6.x before version 6.6

- ------------SOLUTION------------

Install the latest version:

  * If you are running Drupal 5.x then upgrade to Drupal 5.12 [
http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-5.12.tar.gz ].

  * If you are running Drupal 6.x then upgrade to Drupal 6.6 [
http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-6.6.tar.gz ].

Note: the settings.php, robots.txt and .htaccess files have not changed and can
be left as they are if upgrading from the current version of Drupal.

If you are unable to upgrade immediately, you can apply a patch to secure your
installation until you are able to do a proper upgrade. The patches fix security
vulnerabilities, but do not contain other fixes which were released in these

  * To patch Drupal 5.11 use SA-2008-067-5.11.patch [
http://drupal.org/files/sa-2008-067/SA-2008-067-5.11.patch ].

  * To patch Drupal 6.5 use SA-2008-067-6.5.patch [
http://drupal.org/files/sa-2008-067/SA-2008-067-6.5.patch ].

- ------------REPORTED BY------------

  * The file inclusion vulnerability was reported by Anthony Ferrara

  * The cross site scripting issue was reported by Maarten van Grootel [
http://drupal.org/user/109716 ]

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-068

  * Project: Localization client and Localization server (third-party modules)

  * Versions: 5.x, 6.x

  * Date: 2008-October-22

  * Security risk: Moderately critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site request forgery

- ------------DESCRIPTION------------

The Localization client module allows you to translate the interface of your
Drupal site from within each page as you go. The Localization server module
provides a community translation interface for translating Drupal modules and
themes and is primarily used by Drupal translation teams. The server also
provides an interface for the client to send in translation suggestions.

The client's local translation submission interface, approving and declining
suggestions on the server and the client's remote submission to the server are
implemented in ways, which are vulnerable to cross site request forgeries [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_request_forgery ] (CSRF). This may lead
to unintended modifications of translated strings on the client, unintended
rejection or approval of suggestions or unintended remote suggestion submissions
on the sever, when a sufficiently privileged user visits a page or site created
by a malicious person.

- ------------VERSIONS AFFECTED------------

  * Versions of Localization client for Drupal 5.x prior to 5.x-1.1 and for
Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-1.6

  * Versions of Localization server for Drupal 5.x prior to 5.x-1.0-alpha5 and
for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-alpha2

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the Localization client or
Localization server modules, there is nothing you need to do.

- ------------SOLUTION------------

Install the latest version.

  * If you use Localization client upgrade to Localization client 5.x-1.1 [
http://drupal.org/node/324860 ] or Localization client 6.x-1.6 [
http://drupal.org/node/324864 ] respectively.

  * If you use Localization server upgrade to Localization server
5.x-1.0-alpha5 [ http://drupal.org/node/324865 ] or Localization server
6.x-1.0-alpha2 [ http://drupal.org/node/324870 ] respectively.

Also see the Localization client project page [
http://drupal.org/project/l10n_client ] and the Localization server project page
[ http://drupal.org/project/l10n_server ].

- ------------REPORTED BY------------

  * The module maintainers Gábor Hojtsy (Gábor Hojtsy [
http://drupal.org/user/4166 ]) and Jose A Reyero (Jose A Reyero [
http://drupal.org/user/4299 ])
