SA-CORE-2019-004 doesn't affect Drupal 6

by David Snopek on March 20, 2019 - 4:43pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for Drupal core to fix a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

Folks have been asking us, so this is just a short note to say that this issue does NOT affect Drupal 6. So, you can focus just on updating your Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 sites today. :-)

Thanks!

Drupal 6 security update for Views module

by David Snopek on March 13, 2019 - 1:36pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Less Critical security release for the Views 6.x-3.x module to fix an Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This module enables you to create customized lists of data.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize certain field types, leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that a view must display a field with the format "Full data (serialized)" and an attacker must have the ability to store malicious markup in that field.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Note: There are two other security advisories that were published today for Views on Drupal 7, but they don't affect Drupal 6.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

Note: This only affects Views 6.x-3.x -- not 6.x-2.x.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Views 6.x-3.x module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for EU Cookie Compliance module

by David Snopek on March 6, 2019 - 1:56pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for the EU Cookie Compliance module to fix an Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

The module provides a banner where you can gather consent from the user when the website stores cookies.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize data for some interface labels and strings shown in the cookie policy banner.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "Administer EU Cookie Compliance banner".

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the EU Cookie Compliance module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Ubercart module

by David Snopek on March 6, 2019 - 1:51pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Ubercart module to fix a CSRF vulnerability.

The Ubercart module provides a shopping cart and e-commerce features for Drupal.

The taxes module doesn't sufficiently protect the tax rate cloning feature.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Ubercart module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Drupal 6 security update for Context module

by David Snopek on February 27, 2019 - 12:54pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Context module to fix an Open Redirect vulnerability.

The context module enables site builders to setup conditions and reactions for different parts of the site.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize user output when displayed leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have the ability to store malicious markup in the site (e.g. permission to create a node with a field that accepts "filtered html").

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download:

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Context module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Link module (related to SA-CORE-2019-003)

by David Snopek on February 20, 2019 - 2:21pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for the Link module to fix a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability.

The Link module provides a field for storing links.

The module didn't properly validate the field data.

This is mitigated by the fact that the issue is only known to be exploitable via the Services module.

See the core security advisory for Drupal 7 & 8 for more information. Drupal 6 core is not affected, only the Link module.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Link module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

A better way to install CiviCRM on Drupal 8

by David Snopek on February 12, 2019 - 2:26pm

One the most popular articles on our blog is an article I wrote a year and half ago about how to install CiviCRM on Drupal 8.

The method described there worked (and still more-or-less works), but it's... a mess.

It involves running a dozen or so commands, and is pretty easy to get wrong. All of this is just to get code assembled in such a way that you CAN install it.

I'm happy to announce that you can now do this in just a single command!

There's still some little issues and bugs with running CiviCRM on Drupal 8 that need to be manually worked around, but getting over that first hurdle of simply allowing you to install it in the first place should be significantly easier with this new method.

Drupal 6 security update for Public Download Count module

by David Snopek on February 6, 2019 - 1:04pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Less Critical security release for the Public Download Count  module to fix an Open Redirect vulnerability.

Public Download Count keeps track of file download counts, even for public files.

The module did not verify that the links provided to the intermediate page were actually present in the Drupal site content.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch or the full release.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Public Download Count module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
