[HUB] SA-CORE-2014-005: Drupal core - SQL injection

Automated attacks began compromising Drupal 7 websites that were not patched or updated to Drupal 7.32 within hours of the announcement of SA-CORE-2014-005 were detected.


  • 15th of October Drupal announced highly critical security vulnerability SA-CORE-2014-005 in API for all 7.x versions 7.x versions prior to 7.32: https://www.drupal.org/SA-CORE-2014-005

  • 29th of October Drupal also issued Security Advisory PSA-2014-003 with recommendation to recover all potentially sites from backup unless patch was applied within hours of the announcement of SA-CORE-2014-005: https://www.drupal.org/PSA-2014-003


A vulnerability in this API allows an attacker to send specially crafted requests resulting in arbitrary SQL execution. Depending on the content of the requests this can lead to privilege escalation, arbitrary PHP execution, or other attacks.
