Vulnerability: Cross site scripting -------- DESCRIPTION
--------------------------------------------------------
- Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Drupal.
.... Contact category name cross-site scripting The
Contact module does not correctly handle certain user
input when displaying category information. Users
privileged to create contact categories can insert
arbitrary HTML and script code into the contact module
administration page. Such a cross-site scripting attack
may lead to the malicious user gaining administrative
access. Wikipedia has more information about cross-site
scripting [1] (XSS). This issue affects Drupal 6.x and
Drupal 5.x. .... Menu description cross-site scripting
The Menu module does not correctly handle certain user
input when displaying the menu administration overview.
Users privileged to create new menus can insert
arbitrary HTML and script code into the menu module
administration page. Such a cross-site scripting attack
may lead to the malicious user gaining administrative
access. Wikipedia has more information about cross-site
scripting [2] (XSS). This issue affects Drupal 6.x only.
-------- VERSIONS AFFECTED
--------------------------------------------------- *
Drupal 5.x before version 5.21. * Drupal 6.x before
version 6.15. -------- SOLUTION
--------------------------------------------------------
---- Install the latest version: * If you are running
Drupal 6.x then upgrade to Drupal 6.15 [3]. * If you are
