Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Taxonomy Filter module for Drupal, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
Certain input passed via the vocabulary names, terms, and filter menus is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is being viewed.
Successful exploitation requires "administer taxonomy" permissions or the ability to create nodes that have free tagging enabled.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 6.x-1.1.
Solution: Update to version 6.x-1.1 or later.
