[Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2013-060 - Scald - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
From: security-news () drupal org

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-060
  * Project: Scald [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 6.x, 7.x
  * Date: 2013-July-24
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

-------- DESCRIPTION  

This module enables you to handle media assets (atoms) in Drupal with a
Views-based library, drag and drop interface and manage content

The module doesn't sufficiently filter atom properties such as the atom title
when outputting atoms, thereby exposing a Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with the permission to create atoms and the Scald Flash module or the
resource management feature (in the MEE submodule) must be enabled.


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


  * Scald 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.0-beta3.
  * Scald 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.1.

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

-------- SOLUTION  

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the Scald module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to Scald 6.x-1.0-beta3
  * If you use the Scald module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Scald 7.x-1.1 [6]

Also see the Scald [7] project page.

-------- FIXED BY  

  * Franck Deroche [9] the module maintainer
