CAPTCHA - Moderately Critical - Denial of Service - SA-CONTRIB-2017-073

Wed, 06/09/2017 - 20:21
Description

This module enables you to use various techniques to block automated scripts / robots from submitting content to a site, e.g. to block spam comments.

The module doesn't properly store the session ID of visitors who are given a session which could lead to a Denial of Service attack.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that Drupal does not give a session to all visitors, especially when used with advanced caching systems like Varnish.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • CAPTCHA 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.5.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed CAPTCHA module, there is nothing you need to do.

Wed, 06/09/2017 - 18:20
Description

The Clientside Validation module enables you to have clientside (Javascript) validation on your forms.

The module does not sufficiently validate parameters of a POST request made when validating a CAPTCHA.

For the 1.x version of this module, this vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the CAPTCHA module must be enabled and the 'validate captcha' option of the Clientside Validation module must be enabled (this option is enabled by default).

For the 2.x version of this module, this vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the CAPTCHA module must be enabled and the Clientside Validation captcha submodule must be enabled.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • Clientside Validation 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.44.
  • Clientside Validation 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-2.0-beta1.

H5P - Critical - Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-071

Wed, 30/08/2017 - 18:10
Description

The H5P module helps create interactive videos, question sets, drag and drop questions, multichoice questions, boardgames, presentations, flashcards and more using Drupal.

The module does not sufficiently filter text prior to printing it back to the page, leading to a Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that many modern browsers contain protection against some kinds of Reflected XSS vulnerabilities.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • H5P 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.32.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed H5P- Create and Share Rich Content and Applications module, there is nothing you need to do.

Solution

Install the latest version:

  • If you use the H5P module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to H5P 7.x-1.32

Commerce invoices - Highly Critical - SQL Injection and Cross Site scripting - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-070

Wed, 30/08/2017 - 18:09
Description

Commerce Invoices allows you to enter an Invoice number, Company name and Amount and it will generate an Invoice that the client can pay on your site using any payment method supported by Drupal commerce.

SQL Injection

The module did not properly use Drupal's database API when querying the database with user supplied values, allowing an attacker to send a specially crafted request to modify the query or potentially perform additional queries.

The vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker must have the 'access checkout' permission - this permission is commonly granted.

Stored Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

The module did not filter user-supplied text prior to printing that text back to users of the site.

The vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker must have the 'access checkout' permission - this permission is commonly granted.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • All Commerce invoice versions prior to 7.x-1.1

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Commerce Invoices module, there is nothing you need to do.

Solution

Install the latest version:

Special note: the module's strings have changed. Any site that uses Drupal's localization system should review and update the translated strings on the site.

Views refresh - Moderately Critical - Access Bypass - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-069

Wed, 16/08/2017 - 17:02
Description

When creating a view, you can optionally use Ajax to update the displayed data via filter parameters. The views refresh module did not restrict access to the Ajax endpoint to only views configured to use Ajax. This is mitigated if you have access restrictions on the view.

It is best practice to always include some form of access restrictions on all views, even if you are using another module to display them.

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • views fresh versions prior to 7.x-1.2.

Entity Reference - Moderately Critical - Access Bypass - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-067

Wed, 16/08/2017 - 16:35
Description

The entity reference module provides a field type that can reference arbitrary entities.

In a vulnerable configuration, an attacker could determine the titles of nodes they do not have access to.

This is mitigated as only entity reference fields using the "simple" entity selector are vulnerable, and the attack is not possible if any access control (i.e. node access) is in place (the attacker's role is missing only the "access content" permission to be able to view the content.)

CVE identifier(s) issued
  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
  • entityreference 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.5.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Entity reference module, there is nothing you need to do.

Solution

Install the latest version:
