Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-02-02 15:27:16 UTC
A security flaw was found in the way the File module of Drupal, the content management system, enforced download permissions on certain private files, used with certain field access modules. A remote attacker could use this deficiency to obtain private files (information disclosure) even if the were attached to fields, the attacker would not otherwise have access / ability to view.
