Package : drupal7 CVE ID : CVE-2014-9015 CVE-2014-9016

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Drupal, a fully-featured content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:


Aaron Averill discovered that a specially crafted request can give a
user access to another user's session, allowing an attacker to
hijack a random session.


Michael Cullum, Javier Nieto and Andres Rojas Guerrero discovered
that the password hashing API allows an attacker to send
specially crafted requests resulting in CPU and memory
exhaustion. This may lead to the site becoming unavailable or
unresponsive (denial of service).

Custom configured session.inc and password.inc need to be audited as well to verify if they are prone to these vulnerabilities. More information can be found in the upstream advisory at https://www.drupal.org/SA-CORE-2014-006

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 7.14-2+deb7u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
