Description

Moodle is prone to multiple vulnerabilities, including:

  • a cross-site scripting issue
  • a security-bypass issue
  • an HTML-injection issue

Attacker-supplied HTML or JavaScript code could run in the context of the affected site, potentially allowing an attacker to steal cookie- based authentication credentials and to control how the site is rendered to the user; other attacks are also possible.

These issues affect versions prior to Moodle 1.9.9 and 1.8.13.
