Debian Security Advisory DSA-1808-1                  security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                      Steffen Joeris
June 01, 2009                         http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : drupal6
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : no CVE id yet
Debian Bug     : 529190 531386


Markus Petrux discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the
taxonomy module of drupal6, a fully-featured content management
framework. It is also possible that certain browsers using the UTF-7
encoding are vulnerable to a different cross-site scripting
vulnerability.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 6.6-3lenny2.

The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain drupal6.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 6.11-1.1.


We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 packages.


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.
