    Package        : drupal
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2498
    
    Stefan Esser of the Hardened-PHP Project reported a serious vulnerablility
    in the third-party XML-RPC library included with some Drupal versions.  An
    attacker could execute arbitrary PHP code on a target site.  This update
    pulls in the latest XML-RPC version from upstream.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem since
    no drupal is included.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.3-4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
