• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-143
  • Project: PRH Search (third-party module)
  • Version: 7.x
  • Date: 2012-September-19
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


PRH Search provides an interface to search for association information for Finnish association using the PRH (Patentti- ja Rekisterihallitus) database. The module fails to sanitize data retrieved from an untrusted third party source, thereby exposing an arbitrary script injection vulnerability (XSS).

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have either gained access to that third party source or use techniques such as DNS spoofing in order to inject malicious data.
