    Several vulnerabilities have been found in drupal6, a fully-featured
    content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-2372
    
    Gerhard Killesreiter discovered a flaw in the way user signatures are
    handled. It is possible for a user to inject arbitrary code via a
    crafted user signature. (SA-CORE-2009-007)
    
    CVE-2009-2373
    
    Mark Piper, Sven Herrmann and Brandon Knight discovered a cross-site
    scripting issue in the forum module, which could be exploited via the
    tid parameter. (SA-CORE-2009-007)
    
    CVE-2009-2374
    
    Sumit Datta discovered that certain drupal6 pages leak sensible
    information such as user credentials. (SA-CORE-2009-007)
    
    
    Several design flaws in the OpenID module have been fixed, which could
    lead to cross-site request forgeries or privilege escalations. Also, the
    file upload function does not process all extensions properly leading
    to the possible execution of arbitrary code.
    (SA-CORE-2009-008)
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.6-3lenny3.
    
    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 6.14-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 packages.
