Description Andrej Nemec 2018-10-25 14:22:07 UTC
Multiple issues were reported in the latest drupal security advisory.

1. Content moderation - Moderately critical - Access bypass - Drupal 8

In some conditions, content moderation fails to check a users access to use certain transitions, leading to an access bypass.

2. External URL injection through URL aliases - Moderately Critical - Open Redirect - Drupal 7 and Drupal 8

The path module allows users with the 'administer paths' to create pretty URLs for content.

In certain circumstances the user can enter a particular path that triggers an open redirect to a malicious url.

3. Anonymous Open Redirect - Moderately Critical - Open Redirect - Drupal 8

Drupal core and contributed modules frequently use a "destination" query string parameter in URLs to redirect users to a new destination after completing an action on the current page. Under certain circumstances, malicious users can use this parameter to construct a URL that will trick users into being redirected to a 3rd party website, thereby exposing the users to potential social engineering attacks.

4. Injection in DefaultMailSystem::mail() - Critical - Remote Code Execution - Drupal 7 and Drupal 8

When sending email some variables were not being sanitized for shell arguments, which could lead to remote code execution.

5. Contextual Links validation - Critical - Remote Code Execution - Drupal 8

The Contextual Links module doesn't sufficiently validate the requested contextual links.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "access contextual links".
