[Full-disclosure] [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-037 - Slidebox - access bypass

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-037
* Project: Slidebox [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 7.x
* Date: 2012-March-14
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Access bypass


The Slidebox [3] module allows webmasters do display a link to the next node
in a jQuery box that slides in from the right side of the page after a user
scrolls past a certain point.

While the module checks for "published" status, the module does not contain
sufficient usage of node_access() to prevent users from accessing content
that they do not have proper permission to access (for example, nodes or node
types that have been protected via an access control module).


* Slidebox 7.x-1.x versions prior to and including 7.x-1.3.
* Slidebox 7.x-2.x-dev

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

-------- SOLUTION

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Slidebox module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Slidebox 7.x-1.4

See also the Slidebox [6] project page.
