[Full-disclosure] [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-067 - Linkit - Access bypass

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1547738

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-067
* Project: Linkit [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 7.x
* Date: 2012-April-25
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Access bypass


Linkitprovides an easy interface for internal and external linking. Linkit
links to nodes, users, managed files, terms and have basic support for all
entities by default, using an autocomplete field.

When searching for entities, no access restrictions were added and users may
see information about content that they do not normally have access to see.
This issue only affects sites using an entity access module to limit access
to content for some users.


* Linkit 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-2.2.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Linkit [3]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Linkit module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Linkit 7.x-2.3 [4]

Also see the Linkit [5] project page.
