- -------SA-CONTRIB-2009-039 - Links Package - Cross Site Scripting-----------

    * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2009-039
    * Project: Links Package (third-party module)
    * Version: 5.x, 6.x
    * Date: 2009-June-25
    * Security risk: Moderately critical
    * Exploitable from: Remote

- -------Description----------------------------------------------------------

The Links Package is a multi-module set for managing URL links in a master 
directory, and attaching them in various ways to your content pages. The 
Links Related module of the Links Package does not properly escape user 
input used as the title on certain pages. A user with privileges to create 
content could attempt a cross site scripting (XSS) attack which may lead to 
the user gaining full administrative access.

    * Links Package for Drupal 5.x prior to Links Package 5.x-1.13

    * Links Package for Drupal 6.x prior to Links Package 6.x-1.2

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

- -------Solution-------------------------------------------------------------

    * If you use Links Package for Drupal 5.x upgrade to Links 
        Package 5.x-1.13
    * If you use Links Packsge for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Links 
        Package 6.x-1.2
