Original Bulletin: 

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

  * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2011-014
  * Project: Webform Block (third-party module)
  * Version: 6.x
  * Date: 2011-March-23
  * Security risk: Moderately critical (definition of risk levels) [1]
  * Exploitable from: Remote
  * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting

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

The Webform Block module enables users to make a webform available as a
block. The module does not sanitize some of the user-supplied data before
displaying it, leading to a Cross Site Scripting (XSS [2]) vulnerability that
may lead to a malicious user gaining full administrative access. The
vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that a malicious user must be assigned
a role that includes permission to create and/or edit webforms.

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

  * Webform Block module for Drupal 6.x versions prior to 6.x-1.2

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Webform Block
[3] module, there is nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version:
  * If you use the Webform Block module for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Webform
    Block 6.x-1.2 [4]

See also the Webform Block project page [5].
