  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-084
  * Project: FileField Sources [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 6.x, 7.x
  * Date: 2013-Oct-30
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Access bypass

-------- DESCRIPTION  

This module expands on the FileField module by allowing you to select new or
existing files through additional means, such as re-using files with an
auto-complete textfield, attaching server-side files uploaded via FTP,
transferring file files from a remote server, pasting a file directly from
the clipboard, and selecting existing files through the IMCE file browser.

The module doesn't sufficiently check file access permissions when attaching
an existing file. Any existing file could be re-used and the user would then
be granted access to that file.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a
permission granting the ability to create content which has a file field
using the module.


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


  * Filefield Sources 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.9.
  * Filefield Sources 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.9.

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

-------- SOLUTION  

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the FileField Sources module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to
    FileField Sources 6.x-1.9 [5]
  * If you use the FileField Sources module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to
    FileField Sources 7.x-1.9 [6]

Also see the FileField Sources [7] project page.
