This module enables you to build a RESTful API for your Drupal site.

The restful_token_auth module (a sub-module) doesn't validate the status of users when logging them in. This results in a blocked user being able to operate normally with the RESTful actions, even after being blocked.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must be in possession of the credentials of a previously blocked user. It is also mitigated by the attacker only will have the access corresponding to the roles of the blocked user. Finally this only affects sites that use the sub-module, restful_token_auth.
