configurable, skinnable, and secure.

Update Information:

Update to 6.6, security fixes:    SA-2008-067 ( http://drupal.org/node/324824 )
------------DESCRIPTION------------    Multiple vulnerabilities and weaknesses
were discovered in Drupal.    ------------FILE INCLUSION------------    On a
server configured for IP-based virtual hosts, Drupal may be caused to  include
and execute specifically named files outside of its root directory.     This bug
affects both Drupal 5 and Drupal 6.    ------------CROSS SITE
SCRIPTING------------    The title of book pages is not always properly escaped,
enabling users with the  "create book content" permission or the permission to
edit any node in the book  hierarchy to insert arbitrary HTML and script code
into pages. Such a Cross site  scripting [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-
site_scripting ] attack may lead  to the attacker gaining administrator access.
This bug affects Drupal 6.      Remember to log in to your site as the admin
user before upgrading this package. After upgrading the package, browse to
http://host/drupal/update.php to run the upgrade script.
