AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N

Technical Details:
Update Information: Fixes SA-CORE-2009-006 ( http://drupal.org/node/461886 ). When outputting user-supplied data Drupal strips potentially dangerous HTML attributes and tags or escapes characters which have a special meaning in HTML. This output filtering secures the site against cross site scripting attacks via user input. Certain byte sequences that are valid in the UTF-8 specification are potentially dangerous when interpreted as UTF-7. Internet Explorer 6 and 7 may decode these characters as UTF-7 if they appear before the tag that specifies the page content as UTF-8, despite the fact that Drupal also sends a real HTTP header specifying the content as UTF-8. This enables attackers to execute cross site scripting attacks with UTF-7. SA-CORE-2009-005 - Drupal core - Cross site scripting contained an incomplete fix for the issue. HTML exports of books are still vulnerable, which means that anyone with edit permissions for pages in outlines is able to insert arbitrary HTML and script code in these exports. Additionally, the taxonomy module allows users with the 'administer taxonomy' permission to inject arbitrary HTML and script code in the help text of any vocabulary. ChangeLog: * Thu May 14 2009 Jon Ciesla - 6.12-1 - Update to 6.11, SA-CORE-2009-006. * Thu Apr 30 2009 Jon Ciesla - 6.11-1 - Update to 6.11, SA-CORE-2009-005. * Mon Apr 27 2009 Jon Ciesla - 6.10-2 - Added SELinux/sendmail note to README, BZ 497642.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
