- --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT--------------------

- ------------SA-2008-020 - UBERCART - CROSS SITE SCRIPTING------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-020

  * Project: Ubercart (third-party module)

  * Version: 5.x

  * Date: 2008-March-12

  * Security risk: Less critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site scripting

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

The attribute module allows customers to enter a text value as an attribute for
a product, like a name to stitch into a hat.  However, when these text values
were displayed in the shopping cart or on order pages, there was a possibility
for a malicious user to perform a cross site scripting attack.

All users are encouraged to update to the latest version, but this notice
specifically applies to users who have installed the core attribute module and
allow customers to enter custom text for attributes on products in their stores.

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

  * Ubercart for Drupal 5.x prior to 5.x-1.0-beta7

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Ubercart module,
there is nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you use Drupal 5.x install Ubercart 5.x-1.0-beta7 [
http://drupal.org/node/232545 ].

diagnose and fix immediately.
