    Several security related problems have been discovered in drupal, a
    fully-featured content management/discussion engine.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    vulnerabilities:
    
    CVE-2005-3973
    
        Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2005-3974
    
        When running on PHP5, Drupal does not correctly enforce user
        privileges, which allows remote attackers to bypass the "access
        user profiles" permission.
    
    CVE-2005-3975
    
        An interpretation conflict allows remote authenticated users to
        inject arbitrary web script or HTML via HTML in a file with a GIF
        or JPEG file extension.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain drupal packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.3-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge

      Source archives:

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