Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2009-057 (
http://drupal.org/node/579144 )

- Project: Date (third-party module) * Version: 5.x, 6.x
* Date: 2009-September-16 * Security risk: Moderately
critical * Exploitable from: Remote * Vulnerability:
Cross Site Scripting -------- DESCRIPTION
--- The Date module provides a date CCK field that can
be added to any content type. The Date module does not
properly escape user data correctly in some cases when
setting the page title. A malicious user with
permission to post date content could attempt a cross
site scripting [1] (XSS) attack when creating or
editing content, leading to the user gaining full
administrative access. -------- VERSIONS AFFECTED
--------------------------------------------------- *
Date for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-2.4 * Date for Drupal
6.x prior to 5.x-2.8 Drupal core is not affected. If
you do not use the contributed Date module, there is
nothing you need to do. -------- SOLUTION
------ Upgrade to the latest version: * If you use
Date for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Date 6.x-2.4 [2]

- If you use Date for Drupal 5.x upgrade to Date 5.x-2.8
[3] See also the Date project page [4]. --------
