Drupal core - Moderately critical - Cross Site Scripting - SA-CORE-2018-003

Project:        Drupal core

Date:           2018-April-18

Security risk:  Moderately critical 12/25 


Vulnerability:  Cross Site Scripting


CKEditor, a third-party JavaScript library included in Drupal core, has fixed a
cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. The vulnerability stemmed from the
fact that it was possible to execute XSS inside CKEditor when using the image2
plugin (which Drupal 8 core also uses).

We would like to thank the CKEditor team for patching the vulnerability and
coordinating the fix and release process, and matching the Drupal core security


  o If you are using Drupal 8, update to Drupal 8.5.2 or Drupal 8.4.7.
  o The Drupal 7.x CKEditor contributed module is not affected if you are
    running CKEditor module 7.x-1.18 and using CKEditor from the CDN, since it
    currently uses a version of the CKEditor library that is not vulnerable.
  o If you installed CKEditor in Drupal 7 using another method (for example
    with the WYSIWYG module or the CKEditor module with CKEditor locally) and
    you're using a version of CKEditor from 4.5.11 up to 4.9.1, update the
    third-party JavaScript library by downloading CKEditor 4.9.2 from
    CKEditor's site.
