2020-09-16 Drupal security releases

On September 16th 2020, Drupal released a critical and several moderately security issues related to some of its supported major versions:

  • The SA-CORE-2020-007 is a Cross-site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. The Drupal AJAX API does not disable JSONP by default, which can lead to cross-site scripting.
  • The SA-CORE-2020-008 is an access bypass vulnerability. The “Workspaces” module is not able to check access permissions sufficiently when switching workspaces, leading to an access bypass vulnerability. An attacker might be able to see the content before the site owner publishes it.
  • The SA-CORE-2020-009 is a Cross-site Scripting vulnerability. An attacker could leverage the way that HTML is rendered on the affected forms, in order to exploit that vulnerability.
  • The SA-CORE-2020-010 is a Cross-site Scripting vulnerability. Drupal core’s built-in CKEditor image caption functionality is vulnerable to an XSS attack.
  • The SA-CORE-2020-011 is an information disclosure vulnerability. A vulnerability exists in the “File” module which allows an attacker to gain access to the file metadata of a permanent private file which is not previously accessible by guessing its ID.

For more information refer to the following Drupal Security Advisories:
