• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-007
  • Project: User Relationships (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x, 7.x
  • Date: 2013-January-23
  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


The User Relationships module allows you to create multiple relationship types and maintain relationships between users in your Drupal site.

The module does not sufficiently escape relationship names before display. This allows users with the correct permissions to create relationship names containing arbitrary Javascript which will then be executed by the browser.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer user relationships".
