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

- ------------SA-2008-030 - SITE DOCUMENTATION - PRIVILEGE ESCALATION------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-030

  * Project: Site Documentation (third-party module)

  * Versions: 5.x and 6.x

  * Date: 2008-May-14

  * Security risk: Highly critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Privilege escalation

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

The contributed module Site Documentation intends to assist developers and
administrators when they start working with a new site by showing them
information from the database.

All users with the "access content" permission are able to use the module to
list arbitrary tables from the database. In typical scenarios, both anonymous
and authenticated users have the "access content" permission. 

Access to arbitrary tables enables an attacker to impersonate users by using
SESSION IDs obtained from the database.  An attacker could use specifically
crafted URLs to gain access to additional private information, including, but
not limited to, all usernames, password hashes, and e-mail addresses.

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

  * Site Documentation for Drupal 5.x before Site Documentation 5.x-1.8

  * Site Documentation for Drupal 6.x before Site Documentation 6.x-1.1

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you currently use Site Documentation 5.x-1.x upgrade to Site
Documentation 5.x-1.8 [ http://drupal.org/node/258548 ]

  * If you currently use Site Documentation 6.x-1.0 upgrade to Site
Documentation 6.x-1.1 [ http://drupal.org/node/258549 ]
