Secunia Advisory SA47650

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Two vulnerabilities have been reported in the stickynote module for Drupal, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Certain unspecified input when editing a note is not properly sanitised 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 of this vulnerability requires "edit stickynotes" privileges.

2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. delete a note by tricking a logged in user with the "delete stickynotes" privilege into visiting a malicious web site.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 7.x-1.1.


Solution:
Update to version 7.x-1.1.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Greg Knaddison, Drupal Security Team.
