[Security-news] SA-CONTRIB-2013-037 - Rules - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
From: security-news () drupal org
Date: Wed, 27 Mar 2013 20:58:57 +0000 (UTC)

View online: http://drupal.org/node/1954592

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-037
  * Project: Rules [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2013-March-27
  * Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

The Rules module allows site administrators to define conditionally executed
actions based on occurring events (known as reactive or ECA rules). It's a
replacement with more features for the trigger module in core.

The module contains a persistent cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due
to the fact that it fails to sanitize rule tags before display.

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


-------- CVE IDENTIFIER(S) ISSUED  
--------------------------------------------

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

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

  * Rules 7.x-2.x versions prior to 7.x-2.3.

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the Rules module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Rules 7.x-2.3 [5]

Also see the Rules [6] project page.
