[Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-075 - Take Control - Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1569512

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-075
* Project: Take Control [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-May-09
* Security risk: Critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Request Forgery


This module enables you to manage your Drupal file-system from within Drupal
The module does not sufficiently validate Ajax calls leading to possibility
of a Cross Site Request Forgery CSRF attack.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker must be able to
guess your Drupal file-system root path exactly. Further, if your site
follows the secure file-system permissions recommendations [3] and the
web-server account does not have write access to Drupal root, only
files/folders in Drupal's "files" directory are open to manipulation.


* Take Control 6.x-2.x versions prior to 6.x-2.2.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Take Control
[4] module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Take Control module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Take Control
6.x-2.2 [5]

Also see the Take Control [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY

* Carl Wiedemann [7]

-------- FIXED BY

* Rahul Singla [8] the module maintainer


* Greg Knaddison [9] of the Drupal Security Team
* Michael Hess [10] of the Drupal Security Team
