• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-008
  • Project: Video Filter (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x, 7.x
  • Date: 2012-JANUARY-11
  • Security risk: Less critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-1634

The Video Filter module lets you display videos from various third party sources. When videos from Blip.tv are shown, the module fails to sanitize source data before display.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker has to be able to either control the source of third party data (such as via DNS hijack) or manipulate it in transit.

Versions affected

  • Video Filter 6.x-2.x and 6.x-3.x versions prior to 6.x-3.0.
  • Video Filter 7.x-2.x and 7.x-3.x versions prior to 7.x-3.0.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Video Filter module, there is nothing you need to do.
