Drupal 6 security update for CCK
by David Snopek on April 18, 2017 - 1:05pm
As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!
Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the CCK module to fix an Access Bypass vulnerability.
CCK allows you to add custom fields to any content type.
The Node Reference sub-module had a bug where it could list the node titles of nodes that the user doesn't have access to.
Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.
If you have a Drupal 6 site using the CCK module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)
If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.
Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
