Drupal cookie session hijacking
|drupal-cookie-session-hijacking (45298)||Medium Risk|
Drupal could allow a remote attacker to hijack a valid user's session, caused by the improper handling of insecure cookies. By persuading a victim to visit a Web site that sets cookies to a secure flag, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to hijack the victim's HTTP session and possibly launch further attacks on the vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of Drupal (5.11 or 6.5 or later), available from the Drupal Web site. See References.

- CVE-2008-3661: Drupal, probably 5.10 and 6.4, does not set the secure flag for the session cookie in an https session, which can cause the cookie to be sent in http requests and make it easier for remote attackers to capture this cookie.
