  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-1640

This module provides a way to build a control panel similar to the one provided by Drupal 7 on the admin zone (/admin). The module doesn't sufficiently filter user supplied text in the administration settings. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer managesite".

Versions affected

  • Managesite 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.1.

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