Field as Block – Less Critical – Information Disclosure – SA-CONTRIB-2015-161


This module enables you to take a field from the current entity and place it elsewhere as a block.

The module caches the block output in a manner that could allow sensitive content to be seen by visitors who should not see it.

The problem will only occur when other modules alter field output based on user permissions.

CVE identifier(s) issued

  • A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.

Versions affected

  • Field as Block 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.4.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Field as Block module, there is nothing you need to do.
