How to bypass Drupal strong security?

Interestingly enough, today I received a Security Advisory from Drupal saying that users received an email from a hacker asking them to install a Trojan module on their Drupal system.

I find it quite interesting since, if Drupal wasn't secure, the hackers would not have to ask you to make it unsecure, would they?

However, this shows how many CMS systems introduce a security issue problem to your web server installation since it is required to let your web server execute any one PHP file...

All the files installed on your web server and that are directly accessible from the outside (i.e. ...

Simplemenu Inactive Parents

Description

A simple menu is composed of parent menus and children menus. A child has no drop-down menu and a parent does.

By default all the menu items are active, meaning that they all are links one can click on to reach the corresponding destination.

This simplemenu extension allows for turning the link off by replacing the anchor reference in a named anchor. The HTML tag being the same, the simplemenu looks the same, but the item cannot be clicked.

At this time, there is no option to make some of the parent items clickable and others not.

Table of Contents tags and parameters

Syntax

Supported Tags

The module supports 3 tags that all generate a Table of Contents.

The most popular is now [toc] since it is easy to type and works in WYSIWYG editors.

Upgrade from Table of Contents 2.x to 3.x

Make a Backup

DO NOT FORGET TO MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE & CODE.

That way you can come back to your previous version if anything goes wrong. So far, no one told me that they had a problem upgrading. Although version 2.x did not have any schema, the new module may modify nodes and generate incompatible tags.

Show stopper

Version 3.x has a new theme() scheme. It is much more powerful has it allows you to create your own header numbering, etc. However, if you already had a theme() overload in your theme, it will stop working until fixed.

Please, in this case, make sure to upgrade on
