- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-027
- Project: Submenu Tree (third-party module)
- Version: 6.x
- Date: 2012-February-29
- Security risk: Moderately critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting
The Submenu Tree module allows sufficiently privileged users to show a
list of menu entries when displaying a node.
The module does not sanitize some of the user-supplied data before
displaying it, leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
The vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that a malicious user must
be assigned a role that includes permissions to edit the Drupal menus.
- Submenu Tree versions prior to 6.x-1.5
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Submenu Tree module,
there is nothing you need to do.
