Drupal's developers have released versions 6.6 and 5.12 of the Drupal CMS which address a number of vulnerabilities. Among them is a hole which allows attackers to inject and execute scripts and elevate their system access rights this way. The hole can only be exploited on web servers that incorporate a number of virtual host presences.

The developers also removed a Cross Site Scripting hole in the handling of the title in book pages. Users are strongly advised to install the update. Another advisory describes a Cross Site Scripting hole in a language localisation module. An updated module fixes this hole.
