    Several vulnerabilities (SA-CORE-2010-001) have been discovered in
    drupal6, a fully-featured content management framework.
    
    
    Installation cross site scripting
    
    A user-supplied value is directly output during installation allowing a
    malicious user to craft a URL and perform a cross-site scripting attack.
    The exploit can only be conducted on sites not yet installed.
    
    
    Open redirection
    
    The API function drupal_goto() is susceptible to a phishing attack.
    An attacker could formulate a redirect in a way that gets the Drupal site
    to send the user to an arbitrarily provided URL.
    No user submitted data will be sent to that URL.
    
    
    Locale module cross site scripting
    
    Locale module and dependent contributed modules do not sanitize the display
    of language codes, native and English language names properly.
    While these usually come from a preselected list, arbitrary administrator
    input is allowed.
    This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker must have a
    role with the 'administer languages' permission.
    
    
    Blocked user session regeneration
    
    Under certain circumstances, a user with an open session that is blocked
    can maintain his/her session on the Drupal site, despite being blocked.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.6-3lenny5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.16-1, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze)
    shortly.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 package.

    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

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

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
