Justin C. Klein Keane has reported a vulnerability in Drupal Core, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.

Input passed to the "Language name in English" and "Native language name" input fields when adding a new custom language is not properly sanitised before being displayed in e.g. the "Add user" page. 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 the "administer languages" privilege.

The vulnerability is reported in version 6.14 and 6.15. Other versions may also be affected.
