Skype Status - Moderately Critical - Cross Site Scripting - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-076

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-076
* Project: Skype Status
* Version: 7.x
* Date: 2017-September-20
* Security risk: 14/25 ( Moderately Critical)
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


This module enables you to obtain the status for a user's Skype account

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize the user input for their Skype ID.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have an
account on the site and be allowed to edit/input their Skype ID.


Flag clear - Moderately Critical - CSRF - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-074

* Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-074
* Project: Flag clear
* Version: 7.x
* Date: 2017-September-13
* Security risk: 14/25 ( Moderately Critical)
* Vulnerability: Cross Site Request Forgery


The Flag clear module allows administrators to remove user flags for content.
This functionality is often useful in user-submission use-cases, where users
do not necessarily need to unflag things on their own.

The module doesn't sufficiently confirm a user's intent to take unflagging

* Security risk: 10/25 ( Moderately Critical)
* Vulnerability: Denial of Service


This module enables you to use various techniques to block automated scripts
/ robots from submitting content to a site, e.g. to block spam comments.

session which could lead to a Denial of Service attack.
