Vigil@nce - Drupal Media: directory traversal
January 2014 by Vigil@nce
This bulletin was written by Vigil@nce : http://vigilance.fr/offer
SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY
An attacker can traverse directories of Drupal Media, in order to read a file outside the service root path.
Impacted products: Drupal Modules
Creation date: 09/01/2014
DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY
The Media module provides the "Import media files from the local file system" permission, which is used to import a file.
However, users who have this permission can import a file located outside the Drupal installation directory.
An attacker can therefore traverse directories of Drupal Media, in order to read a file outside the service root path.
