Advisory ID: 
Security risk: 
Moderately Critical
Cross Site Scripting
Versions affected: 

The Coffee module helps you to navigate through the Backdrop admin menus faster with a shortcut popup.

The module doesn't sufficiently escape menu names when displaying them in the popup, thereby exposing a XSS vulnerability.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "Administer menus and menu links".


Upgrade your site to use the 1.x-2.2.2 version of the Coffee module.
