A vulnerability has been reported in the Vote Up/Down module for Drupal, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed via taxonomy terms is not properly sanitised in the vud_term sub-module before being used. 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 permissions to create or edit taxonomy terms.
The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 6.x-2.8 and versions prior to 6.x-3.1.
