Drupal core - Moderately critical - Cross Site Scripting - SA-CORE-2018-003

Drupal - Wed, 04/18/2018 - 08:34
Project: Drupal coreDate: 2018-April-18Security risk: Moderately critical 12∕25 AC:Complex/A:User/CI:Some/II:Some/E:Theoretical/TD:DefaultVulnerability: Cross Site ScriptingDescription: 

CKEditor, a third-party JavaScript library included in Drupal core, has fixed a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. The vulnerability stemmed from the fact that it was possible to execute XSS inside CKEditor when using the image2 plugin (which Drupal 8 core also uses).

We would like to thank the CKEditor team for patching the vulnerability and coordinating the fix and release process, and matching the Drupal core security window.

Solution: 
  • If you are using Drupal 8, update to Drupal 8.5.2 or Drupal 8.4.7.
  • The Drupal 7.x CKEditor contributed module is not affected if you are running CKEditor module 7.x-1.18 and using CKEditor from the CDN, since it currently uses a version of the CKEditor library that is not vulnerable.
  • If you installed CKEditor in Drupal 7 using another method (for example with the WYSIWYG module or the CKEditor module with CKEditor locally) and you’re using a version of CKEditor from 4.5.11 up to 4.9.1, update the third-party JavaScript library by downloading CKEditor 4.9.2 from CKEditor's site.
