* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-095
* Project: Simplenews [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x, 7.x
* Date: 2012-June-06
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Information Disclosure

-------- DESCRIPTION
---------------------------------------------------------

Simplenews publishes and sends newsletters. When subscribing to a Simplenews
mailing list, confirmation may be required, and Simplenews may disclose the
user's e-mail address on the confirmation page. Further, due to the absence
of a noindex tag, the list of e-mail addresses can subsequently be indexed by
search engines.

CVE: Requested

-------- VERSIONS AFFECTED
---------------------------------------------------

* Simplenews 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4
* Simplenews 6.x-2.x versions prior to 6.x-2.0-alpha4
* Simplenews 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.0-rc1

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Simplenews [3]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION
------------------------------------------------------------

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Simplenews module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Simplenews
6.x-1.4 [4] or Simplenews 6.x-2.0-alpha4 [5]
* If you use the Simplenews module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Simplenews
7.x-1.0-rc1 [6]
