Stacks - Critical - Arbitrary PHP code execution - SA-CONTRIB-2018-001

Project: StacksDate: 2018-January-10Security risk: Critical 18∕25 AC:None/A:None/CI:Some/II:Some/E:Theoretical/TD:AllVulnerability: Arbitrary PHP code executionDescription: 

This module enables content editors to create complex pages and layouts on the fly without the help from a developer, using reusable widgets.
The module does not sufficiently filter values posted to its AJAX endpoint, which leads to the instantiation of an arbitrary PHP class.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that only sites with the Stacks - Content Feed submodule enabled are affected.


Install the latest version:

  • If you use the Stacks module for Drupal 8.x, upgrade to Stacks 8.x-1.1
