* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CORE-2014-001
* Project: Drupal core 
* Version: 6.x, 7.x
* Date: 2014-January-15
* Security risk: Highly critical 
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Multiple vulnerabilities
Multiple vulnerabilities were fixed in the supported Drupal core versions 6
…. Impersonation (OpenID module – Drupal 6 and 7 – Highly critical)
A vulnerability was found in the OpenID module that allows a malicious user
to log in as other users on the site, including administrators, and hijack
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the malicious user must have
an account on the site (or be able to create one), and the victim must have
an account with one or more associated OpenID identities.
…. Access bypass (Taxonomy module – Drupal 7 – Moderately critical)
The Taxonomy module provides various listing pages which display content
tagged with a particular taxonomy term. Custom or contributed modules may
also provide similar lists. Under certain circumstances, unpublished content
can appear on these pages and will be visible to users who should not have
permission to see it.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that it only occurs on Drupal 7
sites which upgraded from Drupal 6 or earlier.
…. Security hardening (Form API – Drupal 7 – Not critical)
The form API provides a method for developers to submit forms
programmatically using the function drupal_form_submit(). During
programmatic form submissions, all access checks are deliberately bypassed,
and any form element may be submitted regardless of the current user’s access
This is normal and expected behavior for most uses of programmatic form
submissions; however, there are cases where custom or contributed code may
need to send data provided by the current (untrusted) user to
drupal_form_submit() and therefore need to respect access control on the
To facilitate this, a new, optional
$form_state[‘programmed_bypass_access_check’] element has been added to the
Drupal 7 form API. If this is provided and set to FALSE, drupal_form_submit()
will perform the normal form access checks against the current user while
submitting the form, rather than bypassing them.
This change does not fix a security issue in Drupal core itself, but rather
provides a method for custom or contributed code to fix security issues that
would be difficult or impossible to fix otherwise.
