Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2009-038
- Project: Nodequeue (third-party module)
- Version: 5.x, 6.x
- Date: 2009-June-10
- Security risk: Moderately critical
- Exploitable from: Remote
- Vulnerability: Multiple vulnerabilities
The Nodequeue module enables an administrator to arbitrarily put nodes in a group for some purpose, such as providing a listing of nodes or featuring a particular node. It suffers from a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to not properly sanitizing vocabulary names before they are displayed. Additionally, the module does not respect node access restrictions when displaying node titles.
- Nodequeue for Drupal 5.x prior to Nodequeue 5.x-2.7
- Nodequeue for Drupal 6.x prior to Nodequeue 6.x-2.2
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Nodequeue module, there is nothing you need to do.
