[Full-disclosure] [Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-086 - Amadou - Cross Site Scripting

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1608780

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-086
* Project: Amadou [1] (third-party theme)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-May-30
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


The Amadou theme outputs additional first and last classes to the list of
links to help out themers. This was being done in a way that was not secure.

A Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability was identified in Amadou theme's
themes_links() function in the template.php file, which was fixed in the
theme_links() function in Drupal 6.3 as noted in (SA-2008-044
http://drupal.org/node/280571 [3]).

CVE: Requested


* Amadou 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.3.

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

-------- SOLUTION

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Amadou theme for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Amadou 6.x-1.3 [5].

If you have created a custom theme with Amadou or are using Amadou as a base
theme, please see below for a manual fix:

The offending code on line 77 in the original template.php file:
$output .= '';

Should be replaced with the following code:
$output .= '
* $class)) .'>';

Also see the Amadou [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY

* Peter Wolanin [7] and Matt Chapman [8] of the Drupal Security Team

-------- FIXED BY

* Jason Moore [9], Amadou theme maintainer
* Matt Chapman [10] of the Drupal Security Team


* Matt Chapman [11] of the Drupal Security Team
