CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Drupal, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to the menu system not properly controlling access to some pages. This can be exploited to e.g. edit the profile of other users, edit content types if the attacker is able to view administration pages, and disclose potentially sensitive information from the blog and tracker sites despite a missing "access content" permission.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 6.x prior to 6.2.


Solution:
Update to Drupal 6.2 or apply patch.
