This module enables you to create notes on a page inside a block.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize the note text on the admin listing page.

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

CVE identifier(s) issued

  • CVE-2015-7879

Versions affected

  • Stickynote 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.3.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed stickynote module, there is nothing you need to do.


Install the latest version.

Also see the stickynote project page.
