  • Project: stickynote (third-party module)
  • Version: 7.x

  • Security risk: Moderately critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting, Cross Site Request Forgery


CVE: CVE-2012-1636

This module enables you to add textual notes in a block to perform quality assurance of your site.
Previously it did not sufficiently protect against Cross Site Scripting (XSS) or Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF).
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "delete stickynotes" or "edit stickynotes".

Versions affected

  • Stickynote 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.1

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed stickynote module, there is nothing you need to do.
