[Full-disclosure] [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-062 - Creative Commons - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1547520

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-062
* Project: Creative Commons [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-April-25
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


The Creative Commons module allows users to select and assign a Creative
Commons license to a node and any attached content, or to the entire site.
The module did not sufficiently filter the text describing licenses. This
vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with
the permission "administer creative commons".


* Creative Commons 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.1. [3]

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Creative
Commons [4] module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Creative Commons module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Creative
Commons 6.x-1.1 [5]

Also see the Creative Commons [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY

* Justin Klein-Keane [7]

-------- FIXED BY

* Kevin Reynen [8] the module maintainer


* Greg Knaddison [9] of the Drupal Security Team
* Michael Hess [10] of the Drupal Security Team
