• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-037
  • Project: Slidebox (third-party module)
  • Version: 7.x
  • Date: 2012-March-14
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Access bypass


CVE: CVE-2012-2063

The Slidebox module allows webmasters do display a link to the next node in a jQuery box that slides in from the right side of the page after a user scrolls past a certain point.

While the module checks for "published" status, the module does not contain sufficient usage of node_access() to prevent users from accessing content that they do not have proper permission to access (for example, nodes or node types that have been protected via an access control module).

Versions affected

  • Slidebox 7.x-1.x versions prior to and including 7.x-1.3.
  • Slidebox 7.x-2.x-dev

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Slidebox module, there is nothing you need to do.
