Drupal Exposes Millions of Users’ Data

Dear community member, We respect the privacy of your information, which is why, as a precautionary measure, we are writing to let you know about an incident that involves your personal information. The Drupal.org Security and Infrastructure Teams have discovered unauthorized access to account information on Drupal.org and groups.drupal.org. Information exposed includes usernames, email addresses, and country information, as well as hashed passwords. However, we are still investigating the incident and may learn about other types of information compromised, in which case we will notify you accordingly. This unauthorized access was made via third-party software installed on the Drupal.org server infrastructure, and was not the result of a vulnerability within the Drupal software itself. This notice applies specifically to user account data stored on Drupal.org and groups.drupal.org, and not to sites running Drupal generally. We have implemented additional security measures designed to prevent the recurrence of such an attack, and to protect the privacy of our community members. The next time you attempt to log into your account, you will be required to create a new password. Below are steps you can take to further protect your personal information online. We encourage you to take preventative measures now to help prevent and detect the misuse of your information. First, we recommend as a precaution that you change or reset passwords on other sites where you may use similar passwords, even though all passwords on Drupal.org are stored salted and hashed. All Drupal.org passwords are both hashed and salted, although some … Continue reading

Installing MCImageManager on Drupal 6.12

This is a quick note on how to install MCImageManager on Drupal 6.xx in combination with TinyMCE and WYSIWYG API editor. My directory structure is as follows: sites\all\modules\wysiwyg\tinymce\jscripts\tiny_mce\plugins\imagemanager So, looking at that structure, you can see that the WYSIWYG API extension needs to be inside the modules folder. TinyMCE needs to be inside of that. And way down the line, the MCImageManager needs to be inside the plugins folder. Next, you need to edit this file: sites\all\modules\wysiwyg\editors\tinymce.inc I added the code that is in bold: ‘advimage’ => array( ‘path’ => $editor[‘library path’] .’/plugins/advimage’, ‘extensions’ => array(‘advimage’ => t(‘Advanced image’)), ‘extended_valid_elements’ => array(‘img[src|alt|title|align|width|height|hspace|vspace|border|style|class|onmouseover|onmouseout|id|name]’), ‘url’ => ‘http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Plugins/advimage’, ‘internal’ => TRUE, ‘load’ => TRUE, ), ‘imagemanager’ => array( ‘path’ => $editor[‘library path’] .’/plugins/imagemanager’, ‘buttons’ => array(‘insertimage’ => t(‘Image Manager’)), ‘extended_valid_elements’ => array(‘img[src|alt|title|align|width|height|hspace|vspace|border|style|class|onmouseover|onmouseout|id|name]’), ‘url’ => ”, ‘internal’ => TRUE, ‘load’ => TRUE, ), ‘advlink’ => array( ‘path’ => $editor[‘library path’] .’/plugins/advlink’, ‘extensions’ => array(‘advlink’ => t(‘Advanced link’)), ‘extended_valid_elements’ => array(‘a[name|href|target|title|class|onfocus|onblur|onclick|ondlbclick|onmousedown|onmouseup|onmouseover|onmouseout|onkeypress|onkeydown|onkeyup|id|style|rel]’), ‘url’ => ‘http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Plugins/advlink’, ‘internal’ => TRUE, ‘load’ => TRUE, ), then go into the wysiwyg api control panel in drupal, choose your input format -> Buttons and plugins and you will have an option to enable image manager. you will still need to edit the config.php inside the image manager folder to set the authentication. See this page for more details. Basically you will need to make these changes: $mcImageManagerConfig[‘authenticator’] = “ExternalAuthenticator”; $mcImageManagerConfig[‘ExternalAuthenticator.secret_key’] = “thisismysecretkey”; $mcImageManagerConfig[‘ExternalAuthenticator.external_auth_url’] = “/drupal_6_2/auth_drupal.php”; You will also need to copy the sites\all\modules \wysiwyg\tinymce\jscripts\tiny_mce \plugins\imagemanager\plugins\ExternalAuthenticator \auth_drupal.php file to the site’s doc … Continue reading

Drupal vs Joomla vs WordPress

I’m trying to get a sense of how these three stack up against each other. It’s hard to know how many installations (worldwide) there are of each, since they are free and available for download, but this is a project of which I’m interested in adding some stats in the future. software # installations user accounts developer accounts annual downloads wordpress 2,600,000 ? ? ? drupal ? 500,000 2000 1,500,000 joomla ? 255,000 ? ? I do have to say that WordPress seems to be the most polished software of the three I’ve seen so far. WordPress won’t create valid html code for my table, so I guess this document isn’t really XHTML 1.o compliant like my theme’s footer says. Sigh.
