Subject: [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2014-001 - Entity API
	- Access Bypass

View online: https://drupal.org/node/2169595

   * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2014-001
   * Project: Entity API [1] (third-party module)
   * Version: 7.x
   * Date: 2014-January-08
   * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
   * Exploitable from: Remote
   * Vulnerability: Access bypass

-------- DESCRIPTION
---------------------------------------------------------

The Entity API module extends the entity API of Drupal core in order to
provide a unified way to deal with entities and their properties.

.... Comment, User and Node Statistics property access bypass

The module's entity wrapper access API doesn't sufficiently protect comment,
user and node statistics properties from unprivileged user access.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that a module must be enabled
that relies on the Entity property access API and it must be configured to
expose either comment, user or node statistics properties. One example would
be the RESTful Web Services module (RESTWS) with the permission configured to
access the comment, user or node resource for untrusted web service
consumers.

.... Entity list property access bypass

The module's entity wrapper access API doesn't sufficiently check entity
access on referenced entities such as taxonomy terms.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that a module must be enabled
that uses the access() method of entity metadata wrappers to determine access
to a property which references multiple entities to which access is not
granted. One example would be the RESTful Web Services module (RESTWS) with
respectively configured permissions on an entity property or (entity
reference) field, for example a list of (unaccessible) referenced user
entities on a node entity.

.... Unpublished comments access bypass

The module's entity_access() API doesn't protect unpublished comments from
being viewed by unprivileged users.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact a module must be enabled which
uses the provided entity access API on comments and the comment module must
be enabled.


-------- CVE IDENTIFIER(S) ISSUED
--------------------------------------------

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

-------- VERSIONS AFFECTED
---------------------------------------------------

   * Entity API 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.3.

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

-------- SOLUTION
------------------------------------------------------------

   * If you use the Entity API module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Entity API
     7.x-1.3 [5]

Also see the Entity API [6] project page.
