2020-06-18 Drupal Core Critical security issues: SA-CORE-2020-005 and SA-CORE-2020-004

Drupal released several critical security issues related to all the currently supported major versions:

The SA-CORE-2020-004 is a Cross Site Request Forgery. The Drupal core Form API does not properly handle certain form input from cross-site requests, which can lead to other vulnerabilities.

The SA-CORE-2020-005 is a PHP code execution security issue. An attacker could trick an administrator into visiting a malicious site that could result in creating a carefully named directory on the file system. With this directory in place, an attacker could attempt to brute force a remote code execution vulnerability.

Find more information about it in the Drupal Security Advisories SA-CORE-2020-004 and SA-CORE-2020-005.
