  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-075

  * Project: Views

  * Versions: 6.x 

  * Date: 2008-December-16

  * Security risk: Moderately critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: SQL injection

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

The Views module provides a flexible method for Drupal site designers to
control how lists of content are presented.

When using an exposed filter on CCK [ http://drupal.org/project/cck ] text
fields with allowed values, Views does not filter the data correctly. This may
allow malicious users to conduct SQL injection [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQL_injection ] attacks against the site.

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

  * Versions of Views for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-2.2

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the Views module, there is
nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version.

  * If you use Views for Drupal 6.x upgrade to 6.x-2.2 [
http://drupal.org/node/347831 ]

Also see the Views project page [ http://drupal.org/project/views ].

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