[Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2013-007 User Relationships - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
From: security-news () drupal org

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-007
  * Project: User Relationships [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 6.x, 7.x
  * Date: 2013-January-23
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

-------- DESCRIPTION  

The User Relationships module allows you to create multiple relationship
types and maintain relationships between users in your Drupal site.

The module does not sufficiently escape relationship names before display.
This allows users with the correct permissions to create relationship names
containing arbitrary Javascript which will then be executed by the browser.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with the permission "administer user relationships".


  * /A CVE identifier [3] will be requested, and added upon issuance, in
    accordance with Drupal Security Team processes./


  * User Relationships 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4
  * User Relationships 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.0-alpha5

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

-------- SOLUTION  

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the User Relationships module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to User
    Relationships 6.x-1.4 [5]
  * If you use the User Relationships module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to User
    Relationships 7.x-1.0-alpha5 [6]

Also see the User Relationships [7] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY  

  * Klaus Purer [8] of the Drupal Security Team

-------- FIXED BY  

  * Mark Ferree [9] the module maintainer


  * Klaus Purer [10] of the Drupal Security Team
