CVE: CVE-2012-2310

This module enables you to create "tag clouds" with taxonomy terms displayed in different sizes depending on how frequently they are used on a site.
The module doesn't sufficiently filter user supplied text leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the ability to create or edit vocabularies or terms.

Versions affected

  • cctags 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.10.
  • cctags 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.10.

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