  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2012-May-30
  • Security risk: Critical
  • Exploitable from: remote
  • Vulnerability: Access bypass


The filedepot module is a Document Management module. It fulfills the need for an integrated file management module supporting role and user based security. Documents can be saved outside the Drupal public directory to protect documents for safe access and distribution.

The module has a Session Management Vulnerability that caused Internet Explorer browser users to switch users if they uploaded a file using another browser from the same IP address (Internet Protocol address).

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that it only occurred with Internet Explorer and when multiple sessions where running from the same desktop / IP address.
