  * Advisory ID: SA-2008-039

  * Project: Suggested terms (third-party module)

  * Versions: 5.x

  * Date: 2008-June-25

  * Security risk: Moderately critical

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site scripting

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

This module provides "suggested terms" for free-tagging Taxonomy fields based
on terms already submitted. Taxonomy terms as presented in the clickable list
are not properly sanitized. Users who are able to create new terms are able to
insert arbitrary script code and HTML into certain edit pages. This may lead to
administrator access.

  * Suggested terms 5.x releases prior to 5.x-1.2.

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * If you currently use Suggested terms 5.x, upgrade to Suggested terms
5.x-1.2 [ http://drupal.org/node/274905 ].

See also the Suggested terms project page [
