- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-081
- Project: Aberdeen (third-party theme)
- Version: 6.x
- Date: 2012-May-16
- Security risk: Moderately critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting
The Aberdeen theme provides a configurable breadcrumb which is commonly used as an additional navigation tool for users.
The theme outputs the breadcrumb, but does not provide sufficient filtering to prevent a Cross site scripting (XSS) attack.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the "Append the content title to the end of the breadcrumb" checkbox is not enabled by default and needs to be enabled for this to be exploited.
- Aberdeen 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.11
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Aberdeen theme, there is nothing you need to do.
Install the latest version:
- If you use the Aberdeen theme for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to theme 6.x-1.11
If you copied code from the aberdeen_breadcrumb function into a custom sub-theme's template.php file you should compare your code to the changes to ensure that
menu_get_active_title() is properly wrapped in check plain like:
