SA-CONTRIB-2010-034 - Internationalization - Cross Site Scripting
Security advisories for contributed projects  Drupal 6.x
Drupal Security Team - April 7, 2010 - 22:01

    * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2010-034
    * Project: Internationalization (third-party module)
    * Version: 6.x
    * Date: 2010-April-7
    * Security risk: Moderately critical
    * Exploitable from: Remote
    * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


The Internationalization module enables translation of user defined strings 
using Drupal's locale interface. Some of these user defined strings have Input 
formats associated with them and some of the strings used for translating 
blocks were not properly filtered before display.
Additionally all strings translated using this module were not checked for 
potential malicious HTML and script code as regular Drupal string translations 
Both issues would allow a user with the 'translate interface' or the 
'administer blocks' permissions to attempt a cross site scripting (XSS) attack 
which may lead to the user gaining full administrative access.
Versions affected

    * Internationalization 6.x prior to 6.x-1.4

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed 
Internationalization module, there is nothing you need to do. Also if you are 
not using Internationalization's 'String translation' (i18nstrings) module you 
don't need to update.

Install the latest version:

    * If you use Internationalization module for Drupal 6.x, update to 
      Internationalization 6.x-1.4 and run the Drupal database update.

SA-CONTRIB-2010-035: Smileys - Cross Site Request Forgery
Security advisories for contributed projects  Drupal 5.x
Drupal Security Team - April 7, 2010 - 22:04

    * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2010-035
    * Project: Smileys (third-party module)
    * Versions: 5.x
    * Date: 2010-April-07
    * Security risk: Less Critical
    * Exploitable from: Remote
    * Vulnerability: Cross-site Request Forgery


The Smileys module provides a text filter that substitutes emoticons with 
images. The module is vulnerable to cross-site request forgeries (CSRF) via the 
URL used to delete smileys. A user with "administer smileys" permission could 
be tricked into visiting the smiley delete URL and unwittingly remove smileys 
from the site.
Versions affected

    * Smileys module for Drupal 5.x version prior to 5.x-1.2.

Note that Smileys version 6.x-1.0-alpha5 and earlier versions for Drupal 6.x 
are also affected. However, the security team does not provide support for 
alpha releases.

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

Install the latest version.

    * If you use the Smileys module for Drupal 5.x-1.x upgrade to Smileys 

See also the Smileys project page.
