    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Drupal, a fully-featured content
    management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2014-9015
    
        Aaron Averill discovered that a specially crafted request can give a
        user access to another user's session, allowing an attacker to
        hijack a random session.
    
    CVE-2014-9016
    
        Michael Cullum, Javier Nieto and Andres Rojas Guerrero discovered
        that the password hashing API allows an attacker to send
        specially crafted requests resulting in CPU and memory
        exhaustion. This may lead to the site becoming unavailable or
        unresponsive (denial of service).
    
    Custom configured session.inc and password.inc need to be audited as
    well to verify if they are prone to these vulnerabilities. More
    information can be found in the upstream advisory at
    https://www.drupal.org/SA-CORE-2014-006
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7.14-2+deb7u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
