[Full-disclosure] [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-041 - Fancy Slide - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)



* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-041
* Project: Fancy Slide [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-March-14
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

This module enables you to create slideshow blocks to embed into templates.
The module doesn't sufficiently filter user supplied text. This vulnerability
is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the
permission "administer fancy_slide".

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

* Fancy Slide 6.x-2.x versions prior to 6.x-2.6.

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

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

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Fancy Slide module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Fancy Slide
6.x-2.7 [4]

See also the Fancy Slide [5] project page.
