The Views module provides a flexible method for Drupal site designers to control how lists and tables of content, users, taxonomy terms and other data are presented.

Open redirect vulnerability

The module does not sanitize user provided URLs when processing the page to break the lock on Views being edited, thereby exposing an open redirect attack vector.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the Views UI submodule must be enabled.

Access bypass vulnerability

The module does not protect the default Views configurations that ship with the module sufficiently, thereby exposing possibly protected information to unprivileged users.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that it only affects sites that have not granted the common "access content" or "access comments" permission to untrusted users. Furthermore, these default views configurations are disabled by default and must be enabled by an administrator.
