  • Version: 5.x, 6.x
  • Date: 2010-January-13
  • Security risk: Moderately Critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote

The Bibliography module enables users to manage and display lists of scholarly publications. The module does not sanitize some of the user-supplied data before displaying it, leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. Only users with the 'administer biblio' permission are able to exploit this vulnerability.

Versions affected

  • Bibliography module 5.x-1.17 and prior versions
  • Bibliography module 6.x-1.9 and prior versions

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