A vulnerability has been reported in the Views Bulk Operations module for Drupal, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
Certain unspecified input related to the modification of taxonomy via the "Modify node taxonomy terms" action and user tagging enabled vocabulary is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user as vocabulary help. 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 of this vulnerability normally requires "administer taxonomy" permissions.
The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 6.x-1.11.
Solution: Update to version 6.x-1.11.
