The Drupal Security Team discovered several vulnerabilities in Drupal,
a fully-featured content management and discussion engine.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:

CVE-2006-1225

    Due to missing input sanitising a remote attacker could inject
    headers of outgoing e-mail messages and use Drupal as a spam
    proxy.

CVE-2006-1226

    Missing input sanity checks allows attackers to inject arbitrary
    web script or HTML.

CVE-2006-1227

    Menu items created with the menu.module lacked access control for,
    which might allow remote attackers to access administrator pages.

CVE-2006-1228

    Markus Petrux discovered a bug in the session fixation which may
    allow remote attackers to gain Drupal user privileges.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain Drupal packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.3-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.8-1.

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.
