This module creates a new widget for taxonomy fields based on JQuery UI autocomplete.

The module doesn't sufficiently escape the entered taxonomy terms thereby exposing a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have the permission to edit a taxonomy field.
