[Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2012-063 - RealName - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1547660

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-063
* Project: RealName [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-April-25
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

This module allows you to set a pattern for constructing "Real names" for
users out of profile fields. The module does not sufficiently escape users'
real names under certain circumstances which could lead to a Cross-Site
Scripting (XSS) [3] attack.

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

* RealName 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.5 [4].
* RealName 7.x-1.x versions are not vulnerable.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed RealName [5]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version:

* If you use the RealName module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to RealName 6.x-1.5
[6].

Also see the RealName [7] project page.
