• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-011
  • Project: Panels (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2012-January-18
  • Security risk: Moderately critical

  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-0914

The Panels module allows a site administrator to create customized layouts for multiple uses.
The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize administrator supplied data.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer panel layouts".

Versions affected

  • Panels 6.x-2.x versions prior to 6.x-3.10.

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