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

The Flag clear module allows administrators to remove user flags for content.
This functionality is often useful in user-submission use-cases, where users
do not necessarily need to unflag things on their own.

The module doesn't sufficiently confirm a user's intent to take unflagging

- -------- CVE IDENTIFIER(S) ISSUED--------------------------------------------

   * /A CVE identifier [3] will be requested, and added upon issuance, in
     accordance with Drupal Security Team processes./

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

   * All Flag clear module versions prior to 7.x-1.10.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Flag clear [4]
module, there is nothing you need to do.

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

Install the latest version:

   * If you use the Flag clear module for Drupal 7.x, upgrade to Flag clear
     7.x-1.10 [5]

Also see the Flag clear [6] project page.
