Description Vincent Danen 2011-02-09 17:08:31 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-4728 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2010-4728
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-4728
Assigned: 20110208
Reference: http://code.zikula.org/core/ticket/2009

Zikula before 1.3.1 uses the rand and srand PHP functions for random
number generation, which makes it easier for remote attackers to
defeat protection mechanisms based on randomization by predicting a
return value, as demonstrated by the authid protection mechanism.
