Re: CVE Request for Drupal Contributed Modules

Joshua and others on the Drupal team,

It appears that the following followup questions by Kurt Seifried were missed during some of the confusion over contacts and email addresses for Drupal-related security issues.

Please respond to the comments in this email, as it supercedes Kurt's email from October 7.

Chaos tool suite (ctools) - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

This sounds like a single issue with two possible outcomes?

The module doesn't sufficiently validate css import statements to
confirm they only include css content appropriate to show to end
users. This could allow a malicious user to add sensitive content from
the site (e.g. settings.php) exposing that sensitive content to
visitors of the page. It could also be used to execute a Cross Site
Scripting attack.

Links to the code commits fixing this would be helpful.

Your answer to this question will help determine whether we have one CVE or two.

http://drupal.org/node/1732946 | SA-CONTRIB-2012-126 - Hotblocks -
Cross Site Scripting (XSS) and Denial of Service (DoS)

This is a multiple CVE issue?

Kurt - we investigated the advisory and it's pretty clear that the two are distinct, so we assigned the following CVEs (Drupal people, please take note):

CVE-2012-5704 - DoS (infinite loop with self-referencing block)
CVE-2012-5705 - XSS

Multiple Vulnerabilities: http://drupal.org/node/1762220 |
SA-CONTRIB-2012-130 - Jstool - Access Bypass
http://drupal.org/node/1762220 | SA-CONTRIB-2012-130 - Jstool -
Arbitrary code inclusion

The description/vulns don't seem to match up on this one. Can you clarify?

The module does not protect its menu paths, which contain sensitive
information about all javascript files on the site and their contents.
The module does not validate filenames which can lead to potential
read/write access to arbitrary files on the server.

Links to the code commits fixing this would be helpful.

Drupal team - if these both have the same root cause, such as a directory traversal issue, then they would receive one CVE since they are the same type of issue - even if there are different impacts. Otherwise, two CVEs might be needed.

http://drupal.org/node/1762482 | SA-CONTRIB-2012-133 - Taxonomy
Image - Cross Site Scripting (XSS) & Arbitrary PHP code execution
So this is the same root issue, not filtering file uploads allowing an
attacker to upload arbitrary stuff (including PHP code), the outcome
of which could be PHP code execution, or XSS (or other things I
suppose like DoS, CSRF, etc.)?

This is the same basic issue as the last one. If there's one root cause in which file uploads aren't prevented when they should, then they might receive only one CVE.

(Basically, if a user X is intentionally allowed to do action Y, but a vulnerability allows somebody to become X - then we don't assign a separate CVE ID for Y.)
