View online:

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2012-071
* Project: Glossify Internal Links Auto SEO [1] (third-party module)
* Version: 6.x
* Date: 2012-May-02
* Security risk: Moderately critical [2]
* Exploitable from: Remote
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


This module generates internal node to node, node to taxonomy or node to
external URL links (crosslinks) automatically - ideal for SEO of your site's
pages and partner pages.
This module does not protect against an Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attack.
The vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that the attacker must be able to
create or edit any of: content (nodes), vocabularies, or terms.

Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Glossify
Internal Links Auto SEO [3] module, there is nothing you need to do.
