Drupal security advisory DRUPAL-SA-2005-003
Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2005-003
Date: 2005-jun-29
Security risk: highly critical
Impact: system access
Where: from remote
Vulnerability: arbitrary PHP code execution

A flaw has been discovered in the third-party XML-RPC library included with
Drupal. An attacker could execute arbitrary PHP code on a target site.

Versions affected
All versions

Either remove the XML-RPC server, or upgrade to the latest Drupal version:
- If you cannot upgrade immediately, you can secure your site by removing
  the XML-RPC server: simply remove the file 'xmlrpc.php' in the root of
  your Drupal directory.
- If you are running Drupal 4.5.x, then upgrade to Drupal 4.5.4.
- If you are running Drupal 4.6.x, then upgrade to Drupal 4.6.2.
