Search API Autocomplete - Moderately Critical - Cross Site Scripting (XSS) - SA-CONTRIB-2015-140

Drupal Contrib Security Announcements - Wed, 08/19/2015 - 15:02
Description

This module enables you to add autocomplete suggestions for search forms created with the Search API module.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize the HTML output for the returned suggestions, theoretically allowing an attacker to include custom HTML there.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission to create new content (or other indexed entities) and that the search index must be configured to use the HTML filter processor.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • Search API Autocomplete 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.3.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Search API Autocomplete module, there is nothing you need to do.

Solution

Install the latest version:

OSF for Drupal - Critical - Multiple vulnerabilities - SA-CONTRIB-2015-134

Drupal Contrib Security Announcements - Wed, 07/22/2015 - 15:46
Description

The Open Semantic Framework (OSF) for Drupal is a middleware layer that allows structured data (RDF) and associated vocabularies (ontologies) to "drive" tailored tools and data displays within Drupal.

The module is vulnerable to reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) because it did not sufficiently filter user input values in some administration pages. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by making other users visit a specially-crafted URL. Only sites with OSF Ontology module enabled are affected.

Additionally, the module is vulnerable to Arbitrary file deletion. A malicious user can cause an administrator to delete files by getting their browser to make a request to a specially-crafted URL. Only sites with OSF Ontology and OSF Import modules enabled are affected.

Also, some forms were vulnerable to Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF). An attacker could create new OSF datasets by getting an administrator's browser to make a request to a specially-crafted URL. Only sites with OSF Import module enabled are affected.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • OSF 7.x-3.x versions prior to 7.x-3.1.

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

Solution

Views Bulk Operations - Moderately critical - Access Bypass - SA-CONTRIB-2015-131

Drupal Contrib Security Announcements - Wed, 07/01/2015 - 15:35
Description

The Views Bulk Operations module enables you to add bulk operations to administration views, executing actions on multiple selected rows.

The module doesn't sufficiently guard user entities against unauthorized modification. If a user has access to a user account listing view with VBO enabled (such as admin/people when the administration_views module is used), they will be able to edit their own account and give themselves a higher role (such as "administrator") even if they don't have the "'administer users'" permission.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have access to such a user listing page and that the bulk operation for changing Roles is enabled.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • Views Bulk Operations 7.x-3.x versions prior to 7.x-3.3.
  • Views Bulk Operations 6.x-1.x versions.

Description

'me aliases' module provides shortcut paths to current user's pages, eg user/me, blog/me, user/me/edit, tracker/me etc.

Drupal Core - Critical - Multiple Vulnerabilities - SA-CORE-2015-002

Drupal Core Security Announcements - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 16:12
Description Impersonation (OpenID module - Drupal 6 and 7 - Critical)

A vulnerability was found in the OpenID module that allows a malicious user to log in as other users on the site, including administrators, and hijack their accounts.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the victim must have an account with an associated OpenID identity from a particular set of OpenID providers (including, but not limited to, Verisign, LiveJournal, or StackExchange).

Open redirect (Field UI module - Drupal 7 - Less critical)

The Field UI module uses a "destinations" query string parameter in URLs to redirect users to new destinations after completing an action on a few administration pages. Under certain circumstances, malicious users can use this parameter to construct a URL that will trick users into being redirected to a 3rd party website, thereby exposing the users to potential social engineering attacks.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that only sites with the Field UI module enabled are affected.

Drupal 6 core is not affected, but see the similar advisory for the Drupal 6 contributed CCK module: SA-CONTRIB-2015-126

Open redirect (Overlay module - Drupal 7 - Less critical)

The Overlay module displays administrative pages as a layer over the current page (using JavaScript), rather than replacing the page in the browser window. The Overlay module does not sufficiently validate URLs prior to displaying their contents, leading to an open redirect vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that it can only be used against site users who have the "Access the administrative overlay" permission, and that the Overlay module must be enabled.

Information disclosure (Render cache system - Drupal 7 - Less critical)

On sites utilizing Drupal 7's render cache system to cache content on the site by user role, private content viewed by user 1 may be included in the cache and exposed to non-privileged users.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that render caching is not used in Drupal 7 core itself (it requires custom code or the contributed Render Cache module to enable) and that it only affects sites that have user 1 browsing the live site. Exposure is also limited if an administrative role has been assigned to the user 1 account (which is done, for example, by the Standard install profile that ships with Drupal core).

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • Impersonation (OpenID module - Drupal 6 and 7): CVE-2015-3234
  • Open redirect (Field UI module - Drupal 7): CVE-2015-3232
  • Open redirect (Overlay module - Drupal 7: CVE-2015-3233
