- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-048
- Project: Edit Limit (third-party module)
- Version: 7.x
- Date: 2013-May-29
- Security risk: Moderately critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Access bypass
Edit Limit enables you to set time and count-based limits on how and when a user can edit nodes or comments.
The module doesn't sufficiently check user access when editing comments to see if the user has the necessary permissions to edit a comment outside of the limits applied by this module. This makes it possible for a user who can edit their own comments to edit the comments of any other user.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "edit comments".
