Drupal security advisory DRUPAL-SA-2006-006
------------------------------------------------------------------------
----
Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2006-006
Project: Drupal core
Date: 2006-05-24
Security risk: highly critical
Impact: Drupal core
Where: from remote
Vulnerability: Execution of arbitrary files
------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

Description
-----------
Certain -- alas, typical -- configurations of Apache allow execution of
carefully named arbitrary scripts in the files directory. Drupal now will
attempt to automatically create a .htaccess file in your "files" directory
to protect you.

Versions affected
-----------------
All Drupal versions before 4.6.7 and also Drupal 4.7.0.

Solution
--------
If you are running Drupal 4.6.x then upgrade to Drupal 4.6.7.
If you are running Drupal 4.7.0 then upgrade to Drupal 4.7.1.

Make sure you have a .htaccess in your "files" dir and it contains this line:

SetHandler This_is_a_Drupal_security_line_do_not_remove

Contact
-------
The security contact for Drupal can be reached at security (at) drupal (dot) org [email concealed]
or using the form at http://drupal.org/contact.
More information is available from http://drupal.org/security or from
our security RSS feed http://drupal.org/security/rss.xml.
