Debian Security Advisory DSA 745-1                   security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                            Michael Stone

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : drupal
Vulnerability  : arbitrary command execution
Problem type   : input validation errors
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-1921, CAN-2005-2106, CAN-2005-2116

Two input validation errors were discovered in drupal and its bundled
xmlrpc module. These errors can lead to the execution of arbitrary
commands on the web server running drupal.

drupal was not included in the old stable distribution (woody).

For the current stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been
fixed in version 4.5.3-3. 

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
