  * Date: 2010-Dec-15
  * Security risk: Critical
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross-site Request Forgery

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

The Drupal For Firebug module allows developers to use Firebug to get
debugging information about their Drupal installation.

The module does not properly protect the form used to submit PHP code against
Cross-site Request Forgeries (CSRF [1]), allowing a malicious user to trick
an authorized user into executing arbitrary PHP code.

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

  * Drupal For Firebug 6.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Drupal For
Firebug [2] module, there is nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use Drupal For Firebug 5.x, upgrade to Drupal For Firebug 5.x-1.5
  * If you use Drupal For Firebug 6.x, upgrade to Drupal For Firebug 6.x-1.4

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2010-111
  * Project: Views (third-party module)
  * Version: 6.x
  * Date: 2010-December-15
  * Security risk: Moderately critical
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Multiple vulnerabilities

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

The Views module provides a flexible method for Drupal site designers to
control how lists and tables of content are presented. Under certain
circumstances, Views could display parts of the page path without escaping,
resulting in a relected Cross Site Scripting (XSS [1]) vulnerability. An
attacker could exploit this to gain full administrative access. *Mitigating
factors:* This vulnerability only occurs with a specific combination of
configuration options for a specific View, but this combination is used in
the default Views provided by some additional modules. A malicious user would
need to get an authenticated administrative user to visit a specially crafted

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

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

Install the latest version:
  * If you use the Views module for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Views 6.x-2.12 [3]
