  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-009
  * Project: Keyboard Shortcut Utility [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2013-January-23
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Access bypass

-------- DESCRIPTION  

The Keyboard Shortcut Utility module enables you to create keyboard shortcuts
on your website. You can create a shortcut to go to a page (internal or
external) or call a JavaScript function.

The module doesn't sufficiently check node access to view nodes for users who
have "view shortcuts" permission. It also doesn't check node access to view,
edit, or delete nodes for users who have the "admin shortcuts" permission.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with the permission "view shortcuts" or "admin shortcuts".


  * /A CVE identifier [3] will be requested, and added upon issuance, in
    accordance with Drupal Security Team processes./


  * All Keyboard Shortcut Utility 7.x-1.x versions.

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

-------- SOLUTION  

Uninstall the module. No patched version is available.

Also see the Keyboard Shortcut Utility [5] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY  

  * Michael Griego [6]

-------- FIXED BY  

Not applicable.
