  • Version: 7.x
  • Date: 2012-August-15
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


Elegant Theme is a light weight Drupal 7 theme with a modern look and feel.

The theme doesn't properly sanitize user-entered content in the 3 slide gallery on the homepage leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker would have to have the 'administer themes' permission.
