    The Drupal Security Team discovered several vulnerabilities in Drupal,
    a fully-featured content management and discussion engine.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2006-1225
    
        Due to missing input sanitising a remote attacker could inject
        headers of outgoing e-mail messages and use Drupal as a spam
        proxy.
    
    CVE-2006-1226
    
        Missing input sanity checks allows attackers to inject arbitrary
        web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2006-1227
    
        Menu items created with the menu.module lacked access control for,
        which might allow remote attackers to access administrator pages.
    
    CVE-2006-1228
    
        Markus Petrux discovered a bug in the session fixation which may
        allow remote attackers to gain Drupal user privileges.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain Drupal packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.3-6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.8-1.
    
    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:
    
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/d/drupal/drupal_4.5.3-6.dsc

      Architecture independent components:
    
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/d/drupal/drupal_4.5.3-6_all.deb

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