This module enables you to manage migration processes through the administrative UI.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize destination field labels thereby exposing a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability (XSS).

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with permission to create/edit fields (such as "administer taxonomy"), or be able to modify source data being imported by an administrator. Furthermore, the migrate_ui submodule must be enabled.
