• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2011-058
  • Project: Support Timer (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2011-November-30
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


The Support Timer module adds a javascript-based timer to the Support Ticketing System for tracking how long users are working on support tickets, as well as administrative reports.

The module does not properly sanitize user-supplied content, resulting in multiple Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "track time spent".
