Open ReadSpeaker - Moderately critical - Cross site scripting - SA-CONTRIB-2020-024

drupal hosting

Project: Open ReadSpeaker
Version: 8.x-1.x-dev
Date: 2020-June-10
Security risk: Moderately critical 13∕25 
Vulnerability: Cross site scripting


This module enables you to add a configured ReadSpeaker button for text-to-speech for your site visitors.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize block configuration causing a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer blocks".


Install the latest version:

If you use the Open ReadSpeaker module for Drupal 8.x, upgrade to Open ReadSpeaker 8.x-1.5
