• Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2010-039
  • Project: CCK TableField (third-party module)
  • Version: 6.x
  • Date: 2010-May-05
  • Security risk: Moderately Critical
  • Exploitable from: Remote
  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

Description

The CCK TableField module provides a generic method to attach tabular data to a node. CCK TableField does not sanitize table headers before output, allowing anyone with permissions to create or edit a node containing one or more TableField fields to insert arbitrary HTML and script code. Such a cross site scripting (XSS) attack may also lead to a malicious user gaining full administrative access.

Versions affected

  • CCK TableField module for Drupal 6.x version prior to 6.x-1.2.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed CCK TableField module for Drupal 6.x, there is nothing you need to do.

Solution

Install the latest version or disable the module.
