Depending on how the modules are configured, this vulnerability may extend to relatively unprivileged users, such as those with the ability to post comments, user "shouts" or other content. Versions affected * Heartbeat for Drupal 6.x versions prior to 6.x-4.9 Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Heartbeat modules, there is nothing you need to do. Solution Install the latest version: * If you use the Heartbeat module for Drupal 6.x, update to Heartbeat 6.x-4.9. See also the Heartbeat project page. Reported by Some aspects of the vulnerability were reported by Sebastian Szalachowski, and others were reported by Jochen Stals (Stalski), the module maintainer.
