Drupal Google Site Search Module API Data Handling XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP application that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote web server hosts a version of the Google Site Search Module
for Drupal that is version 6.x prior to 6.x-1.4 or 7.x prior to
7.x-1.10. As such, the application is affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability due to the application failing to properly
sanitize API data before returning it to the user. This could allow a
remote, unauthenticated attacker to create a specially crafted request
to execute arbitrary script code into a user's browser to be executed
within the security context of the affected site.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues, but instead has relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
