Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2014-11-20 16:21:49 UTC
It was reported [1] that Drupal core 6.x versions prior to 6.34, and Drupal core 7.x versions prior to 7.34 have session hijacking vulnerability.
A specially crafted request can give a user access to another user's session, allowing an attacker to hijack a random session.

This attack is known to be possible on certain Drupal 7 sites which serve both HTTP and HTTPS content ("mixed-mode"), but it is possible there are other attack vectors for both Drupal 6 and Drupal 7.
