• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-072
  • Project: Node View Permissions (third-party module)
  • Version: 7.x
  • Date: 2013-August-28
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Access bypass


The Node View Permissions module adds permissions "View own content" and "View any content" for each content type on the permissions page.
However, it only implements hook_node_access() and not hook_query_alter(), which means any listing of nodes does not respect the node view permission.
