External link page module for Drupal administration page cross-site scripting
|externallinkpage-redirect-xss (58714)||Medium Risk|
The External link page module for Drupal is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the redirect page. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability via the administration page using a specially-crafted URL to inject malicious script which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the redirect page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
