  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2013-076
  * Project: jQuery Countdown [1] (third-party module)
  * Version: 7.x
  * Date: 2013-September-11
  * Security risk: Less critical [2]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

This jQuery Countdown Module enables you to display a countdown block based
upon date settings.

The jQuery Countdown Module does not properly sanitize the settings, allowing
a malicious user to embed scripts within a page, resulting in a Cross-site
Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have the
"access administration pages" permission.


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

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

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

  * jquery_countdown 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.0.

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use the jQuery Countdown module, upgrade to jQuery Countdown
    7.x-1.1 [5]

Also see the jQuery Countdown [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY

-------- FIXED BY  
------------------------------------------------------------

  * Dennis Brücke [8] the module maintainer

-------- COORDINATED BY
