Subject: [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2013-086 - Monster
	Menus - Access bypass

View online:

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-086
  * Project: Monster Menus [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2013-October-30
  * Security risk: Critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Access bypass

-------- DESCRIPTION  

Monster Menus includes the ability to protect the visibility of comments for
each node based on hierarchical permissions. However, a carefully-crafted URL
could be used to bypass these permissions, allowing an anonymous user to view
the comments associated with certain nodes.

In order for this flaw to be relevant and exploited, the node itself must be
readable by the attacker. Furthermore, the "Who can read comments" setting
for the node must be something other than "Everyone".


  * /A CVE identifier [3] will be requested, and added upon issuance, in
    accordance with Drupal Security Team processes./


  * monster_menus 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.15.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Monster Menus
[4] module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION  

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the monster_menus module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to
    monster_menus 7.x-1.15 [5]

Also see the Monster Menus [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY  

  * Dan Wilga [7]

-------- FIXED BY  

  * Dan Wilga [8] the module maintainer


  * Greg Knaddison [9] of the Drupal Security Team
