• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-083
  • Project: Taxonomy List (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2012-May-23
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


CVE: CVE-2012-2711

This module enables you to display the terms (and optionally nodes) under categories.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize user supplied text in the taxonomy information.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with permissions to create or edit taxonomy terms.

Versions affected

  • Taxonomy List 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4.

The 6.x-2.x branch is not affected.

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