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

- ------------SA-2008-069 - CCK FOR 5.X AND 6.X - XSS VULNERABILITIES------------

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2008-069

  * Project: Content Construction Kit (third-party module)

  * Versions: 5.x, 6.x

  * Date: 2008-November-5

  * Security risk: Minor

  * Exploitable from: Remote

  * Vulnerability: Cross site scripting

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

The Content Construction Kit (CCK) allows certain privileged users to add
custom fields to content types using a web browser.

Some field labels and content-type names are displayed without appropriate
filtering in the administrative interface. Malicious users with the "administer
content" permission are able to exploit this issue and insert arbitrary HTML and
script code into pages. Such a cross site scripting attack (XSS) may lead to the
malicious user gaining full administrative access.

This is only an issue if you need any role separation between administrators
and users with the "administer content" permission.

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

  * CCK for Drupal 5.x prior to 5.x-1.10

  * CCK for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-2.0 (including all RC releases)

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

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

Install the latest version:

  * For Drupal 5.x, install CCK 5.x-1.10 [ http://drupal.org/node/330570 ]

  * For Drupal 6.x, install CCK 6.x-2.0 [ http://drupal.org/node/330573 ]

See also the CCK project page [ http://drupal.org/project/cck ].

- ------------REPORTED BY------------

The cross site scripting issue was reported by CCK maintainers.
