    Debian Bug     : 526378
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in drupal, a web content
    management system.
    
    pod.Edge discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability due that can be
    triggered when some browsers interpret UTF-8 strings as UTF-7 if they
    appear before the generated HTML document defines its Content-Type.
    This allows a malicious user to execute arbitrary javascript in the
    context of the web site if they're allowed to post content.
    
    Moritz Naumann discovered an information disclosure vulnerability.  If
    a user is tricked into visiting the site via a specially crafted URL
    and then submits a form (such as the search box) from that page, the
    information in their form submission may be directed to a third-party
    site determined by the URL and thus disclosed to the third party. The
    third party site may then execute a cross-site request forgery attack
    against the submitted form.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version
    6.6-3lenny1.
    
    The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain drupal and is not
    affected.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.11-1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 package.

    Debian (stable)
    - ---------------
    
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

      its next update.
