SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/37923/

DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in the FAQ module for Drupal,
which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion
attacks.

Certain input passed via an unspecified parameter is not properly
sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited
to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a
user's browser session in context of an affected site when the
malicious data is being viewed.

Successful exploitation requires 'administer faq', 'create faq', or
'edit faq' permissions.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 6.x-1.11 or
5.x-2.14.

SOLUTION:
FAQ 6.x:
Update to version 6.x-1.11.
http://drupal.org/node/666776

FAQ 5.x:
Update to version 5.x-2.14.
