Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Bricolage, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed via the "source_name" and "description" parameters to admin/profile/source/ and the "name" and "description" parameters to admin/profile/output_channel/ and admin/profile/element_type/ is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
2) Input passed via the "name" and "description" parameters to admin/profile/output_channel/, the "source_name" and "description" parameters to admin/profile/source/, and the "name" parameter to admin/profile/element_type/ 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 the "Publishing Admins" group membership.
