- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-076
- Project: jQuery Countdown (third-party module)
- Version: 7.x
- Date: 2013-September-11
- Security risk: Less critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting
This jQuery Countdown Module enables you to display a countdown block based upon date settings.
The jQuery Countdown Module does not properly sanitize the settings, allowing a malicious user to embed scripts within a page, resulting in a Cross-site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have the "access administration pages" permission.
