  * Version: 6.x
  * Date: 2010-May-05
  * Security risk: Moderately Critical
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

- -------- DESCRIPTION  
- ---------------------------------------------------------
The CCK TableField module provides a generic method to attach tabular data to
a node. CCK TableField does not sanitize table headers before output,
allowing anyone with permissions to create or edit a node containing one or
more TableField fields to insert arbitrary HTML and script code. Such a cross
site scripting [1] (XSS) attack may also lead to a malicious user gaining
full administrative access.
- ---------------------------------------------------

  * CCK TableField module for Drupal 6.x version prior to 6.x-1.2.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed CCK TableField
module for Drupal 6.x, there is nothing you need to do.
- -------- SOLUTION  
- ------------------------------------------------------------

Install the latest version or disable the module.
  * If you use CCK TableField 6.x-1.1 or older, upgrade to CCK TableField
    6.x-1.2 [2]

See also the CCK TableField [3] project page.
