Version     : 6.x.2.4
Release     : 0.fc11

Summary     : This package contains both the Date module and a Date API module

type for the cck content module which requires the CCK content.module and
the Date API module.

Update Information:

 * Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2009-057     ( http://drupal.org/node/579144 )
* Project: Date (third-party module)   * Version: 5.x, 6.x   * Date:
2009-September-16   * Security risk: Moderately critical   * Exploitable from:
Remote   * Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting    -------- DESCRIPTION
---------------------------------------------------------    The Date module
provides a date CCK field that can be added to any content  type. The Date
module does not properly escape user data correctly in some  cases when setting
the page title. A malicious user with permission to post  date content could
attempt a cross site scripting [1] (XSS) attack when  creating or editing
content, leading to the user gaining full administrative  access.  --------
VERSIONS AFFECTED ---------------------------------------------------     * Date
for Drupal 6.x prior to 6.x-2.4   * Date for Drupal 6.x prior to 5.x-2.8
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Date module,
there is nothing you need to do.  -------- SOLUTION
------------------------------------------------------------    Upgrade to the
latest version:   * If you use Date for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Date 6.x-2.4 [2]
* If you use Date for Drupal 5.x upgrade to Date 5.x-2.8 [3]    See also the
Date project page [4].  -------- REPORTED BY
