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.
