* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-136
* Project: Apache Solr Autocomplete [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x, 7.x
* Date: 2012-August-29
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

Apache Solr Search Autocomplete module enables you to add autocomplete
capabilities to the search text field for the Apache Solr Search Integration
module.

The module doesn't sufficiently filter the autocomplete results sent back
from the Drupal site, so under the scenario where someone provided a URL with
a specially-crafted search string embedded in it, the attacker could have a
user execute arbitrary Javascript when clicking or focusing on the
autocomplete text field.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacked user must click
or otherwise give focus to the text widget to have the Javascript activate.

CVE: Requested

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

* Apache Solr Autocomplete 6.x-1.x versions prior to 6.x-1.4.
* Apache Solr Autocomplete 7.x-1.x versions prior to 7.x-1.3.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Apache Solr
Autocomplete [3] module, there is nothing you need to do.

-------- SOLUTION
