Drupal custom content type cross-site scripting
|drupal-contenttype-xss (35637)||Medium Risk|
Drupal is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by multiple scripts, including the setting.php script. An authenticated remote attacker with "administer content types" permissions could exploit this vulnerability using custom content type name fields to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
