  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-161
  * Project: Webform CiviCRM Integration [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2012-November-07
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Access bypass

-------- DESCRIPTION  

Webform CiviCRM integration allows you to expose contact data via Webforms.
Depending on what fields you have exposed in your form, this may include
personal information such as birthdate, phone number, email address, etc.
Proper permission settings are important to keep this information from prying
Each "existing contact" on a webform has a setting to enforce CiviCRM
permissions -- this setting should rarely be disabled, and only done so by
admins who know what they're doing. Unfortunately some circumstances may have
led this setting to be incorrectly disabled by the admin:

  * In version 3.0 - 3.1 of this module, "Enforce Permissions" was not on by
    default, and needed to be manually selected by the admin. This was fixed
    in 3.2.
  * In versions 3.0 - 3.2, the current user could not be autofilled for normal
    unprivledged users. This may have led some admins to disable the "Enforce
    Permissions" setting, a dangerous workaround.
  * In versions 3.0 - 3.3, autofilling a contact via the url with a checksum
    did not work for anonymous users unless the "Enforce Permissions" setting
    was disabled.

Version 3.4 includes an update script which will automatically set "Enforce
Permissions" for all existing contacts to /true/. Once you have upgraded, you
may wish to review your webforms and ensure that autofilling contacts works
as expected, especially for anonymous users. In a few rare cases where you
have established access control through some other means, disabling "Enforce
Permissions" may be necessary and you will need to do so manually.

CVE: Requested
