Drupal core - Critical - Cross-site scripting - SA-CORE-2021-002

Project: Drupal core

Date: 2021-April-21

Security risk: 
Critical 15∕25 AC:Basic/A:None/CI:Some/II:Some/E:Theoretical/TD:Default

Vulnerability: Cross-site scripting

Drupal core's sanitization API fails to properly filter cross-site scripting
under certain circumstances.

Not all sites and users are affected, but configuration changes to prevent the
exploit might be impractical and will vary between sites. Therefore, we 
recommend all sites update to this release as soon as possible.

Install the latest version:

If you are using Drupal 9.1, update to Drupal 9.1.7.
If you are using Drupal 9.0, update to Drupal 9.0.12.
If you are using Drupal 8.9, update to Drupal 8.9.14.
If you are using Drupal 7, update to Drupal 7.80.

Versions of Drupal 8 prior to 8.9.x are end-of-life and do not receive security coverage.
