Original Bulletin: 

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

View online: 
   * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-PSA-2014-002
   * Project: Drupal core [1]
   * Version: 6.x, 7.x
   * Date: 2014-May-21
   * Security risk: Not critical [2]
   * Exploitable from: Remote
   * Vulnerability: Information Disclosure

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

This is a public service announcement regarding the "access site reports"
permission (labeled as "View site reports" in the Drupal 7 administrative
interface) provided by Drupal 6 and 7 core.

This permission allows users to see logs (for example, those provided by the
core Database Logging module) and other reports via the administrative
interface of a Drupal site.  Due to the nature of the data logged by various
core and contributed modules, users with this permission can see information
in the logs that they otherwise may not have access to (for example, the
titles of nodes that are restricted by node access).

As such:

   * This permission should be granted to trusted site administrators only. It
     is now listed as an advanced permission at
     https://drupal.org/security-advisory-policy [3], and a future release of
     Drupal 7 core will mark it as restricted on the permissions page as well.
   * Developers may freely use Drupal's watchdog() function to log relevant
     information about the actions they are performing (without worrying about
     minor information disclosure or access bypass issues).  However, care
     should still be taken to only log what is necessary.  For example, 
     logging extremely sensitive information such as plain-text user passwords 
     (see SA-CONTRIB-2010-091 [4]) would still be considered a security issue
     because plain-text passwords should never be saved or displayed anywhere
     on the site.

- -------- CVE IDENTIFIER(S) ISSUED--------------------------------------------

   * /A CVE identifier [5] will be requested, and added upon issuance, in
     accordance with Drupal Security Team processes./

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

All versions of Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 core.

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

Only grant trusted site administrators the "access site reports"/"View site
reports" permission.

Also see the Drupal core [6] project page.
