Description

The Inline Entity Form module provides a field widget for inline management (creation, modification, removal) of referenced entities.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize user supplied text, thereby exposing a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with permission to create/edit fields.
