H5P - Critical - Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) - DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2017-071

Description

The H5P module helps create interactive videos, question sets, drag and drop questions, multichoice questions, boardgames, presentations, flashcards and more using Drupal.

The module does not sufficiently filter text prior to printing it back to the page, leading to a Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that many modern browsers contain protection against some kinds of Reflected XSS vulnerabilities.
