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

- ------------SA-2007-032 - SHOUTBOX - CROSS SITE SCRIPTING  ------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2007-032

  * Project: Shoutbox (third-party module)

  * Version: 5.x

  * Date: 2007-December-05

  * Security risk: Less critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site scripting

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

Message sent from the Shoutbox block, where visitors can quickly post short
messages, are not properly sanitized in a number of cases. This allows malicious
users to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into the block. Learn more about
cross site scripting on Wikipedia [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_site_scripting ].

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

  * Shoutbox for Drupal 5.x before Shoutbox 5.x-1.1.

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use Drupal 5.x upgrade to Shoutbox 5.x-1.1 [
http://drupal.org/node/184513 ].

- ------------SA-2007-033 - FEATURE - CSRF------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2007-033

  * Project: Feature module (third-party module)

  * Version: 4.7.x, 5.x

  * Date: 2007-December-05

  * Security risk: Not critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site request forgery

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

Feature is a contributed module that lets you organize and maintain a feature
list by category.
The Drupal Forms API protects against cross site request forgeries (CSRF),
where a malicous site can cause a user to unintentionally submit a form to a
site where he is authenticated. The feature deletion form does not follow the
standard Forms API submission model and is therefore not protected against this
type of attack. A CSRF attack may result in the deletion of features.

To learn more about Cross Site Request Forgeries please read this article [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_request_forgery ].

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

  * Feature 4.7.x-dev before December 6, 2007.

  * Feature 5.x-dev before December 6, 2007.

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use Drupal 4.7.x upgrade to Feature 4.7.x-1.0 [
http://drupal.org/node/198172 ]

  * If you use Drupal 5.x upgrade to Feature 5.x-1.0 [
http://drupal.org/node/198171 ]
