  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-158
  * Project: MailChimp [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2012-October-24
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

-------- DESCRIPTION  

This module provides integration with the MailChimp email delivery service.

There are two issues with the webhook processing, which is exposed as an API
in mailchimp.module and used by mailchimp_lists.module to update subscriber

  * The webhook URL key can be trivially calculated.
  * Webhook variables from POST requests are not properly sanitized.

Mitigating these issues is the fact that attackers cannot tamper with email
subscriptions even if they know the webhook path, because changes are pulled
in from the MailChimp API only.

CVE: Requested


  * MailChimp 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-2.7.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed MailChimp [3]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION  

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the MailChimp module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to MailChimp
    7.x-2.7 [4]

Also see the MailChimp [5] project page.
