- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-020
- Project: Faster Permissions (third-party module)
- Version: 7.x
- Date: 2012-February-15
- Security risk: Highly critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Access bypass
This module enables you to configure the permissions of a specific module on a separate page. This is especially handy for sites with a large list of permissions.
The module doesn't sufficiently check for the required permissions when the provided permission administration is displayed and therefore allows users without the required permissions to configure module permissions.
- Faster Permissions 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-1.2.
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Faster Permissions module, there is nothing you need to do.
Install the latest version:
- If you use the Faster Permissions module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Faster Permissions 7.x-1.2
See also the Faster Permissions project page.

Edited to link to the 7.x-1.2 release instead of the mistaken 7.x-7.2 release. Both contain the same code, but 7.x-1.2 is more appropriate for Drupal's update mechanism.
