Description:

The Workflow module for Drupal is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker with "administer workflow" permissions could exploit this vulnerability using workflow names or workflow states 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.
