Drupal Contact Forms 6.x Cross Site Scripting

Change Mirror Download
  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-044
* Project: Contact Forms [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-March-28
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

This module expands the features of the site wide contact form. It eliminates
the drop down category menu by generating a clean looking contact form with a
unique path, for each of the contact form categories.

The module doesn't sufficiently filter user text of the page title and
additional information, leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role
with the permission "administer site-wide contact form" and the core contact
form needs to be enabled.

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

* Contact forms 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.13 [3].

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

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

Install the latest version:

* If you use the Contact Forms module for Drupal 6.x, upgrade to 6.x-1.13
[5]

Also see the Contact Forms [6] project page.

-------- REPORTED BY

-------- FIXED BY

* Geoff Davies [8] the module maintainer

-------- COORDINATED BY
------------------------------------------------------
