Description

'me aliases' module provides shortcut paths to current user's pages, eg user/me, blog/me, user/me/edit, tracker/me etc.

The view user argument handler for the 'me' module has an access bypass vulnerability where it does not check the supplied argument against the current user. This allows any user to access the content served by the view by substituting 'me' in the URL with a user id even when they don't have permission to access the content.

These only affects Views which use the Views 'me' user argument handler.

Versions affected

  • me aliases 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.2
