• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-002
  • Project: Lingotek Collaborative Translation (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2012-January-04
  • Security risk: Critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-1624

This module enables you to translate a website's content using tools provided by the Lingotek Collaborative Translation Network.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize user input when creating or editing page content. This allows a malicious content editor to potentially input malicious code (e.g. Javascript) to create a persistent Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attack.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission to edit or create node content types.

Versions affected

  • Lingotek 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4 6.x-1.40.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Lingotek Collaborative Translation module, there is nothing you need to do.


Install the latest version:

  • If you use the Lingotek module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Lingotek 6.x-1.4 Lingotek 6.x-1.40.
