• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-054
  • Project: Chaos tool suite (ctools) (third-party module)
  • Version: 7.x
  • Date: 2012-March-28
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-2082

This suite is primarily a set of APIs and tools to improve the developer experience. It also contains a module called the Page Manager whose job is to manage pages. In particular it manages panel pages, but as it grows it will be able to manage far more than just Panels.

The module doesn't appropriate filter user signatures when rendering comments.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "post comments" and a site must use Chaos tool suite to render comments.

Versions affected

  • Chaos tool suite 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.0.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Chaos tool suite (ctools) module, there is nothing you need to do.
