  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-155
  * Project: ShareThis [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2012-October-10
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

-------- DESCRIPTION  
---------------------------------------------------------

This module enables integration with the ShareThis [3] web service to allow
social bookmarking amongst your users.
The module doesn't sufficiently filter JavaScript settings before outputting
them.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with the permission "administer sharethis".

-------- VERSIONS AFFECTED  
---------------------------------------------------

  * ShareThis 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-2.5.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed ShareThis [4]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION  
------------------------------------------------------------

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the ShareThis module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to ShareThis
    7.x-2.5 [5]

Also see the ShareThis [6] project page.
