Description

Vulnerability Description

The Drupal Site Profile Directory module contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the 'name' and 'title' variables upon submission to a profile listing script. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.

Solution Description

Upgrade to either version 4.6 revision 1.1.2.1 or 4.7 revision 1.2.2.1 of the Drupal Site Profile Directory module, as both versions have been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
