Hostip - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

Hostip enables you to query the [3] API to get the country / state information based on the user's IP address or a specific IP passed to it. The module fails to sanitize data retrieved from an untrusted third party source, thereby exposing an arbitrary script injection vulnerability (XSS).

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have either gained access to that third party source or use techniques such as DNS spoofing in order to inject malicious data.

Twitter Pull - Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

Twitter Pull allows you to retrieve tweets from Twitter based on a user or search and display them on your site. It also includes integration with the boxes module to allow for simple placement of twitter feeds on various pages.

The module doesn't sufficiently filter the data coming from Twitter which could result in script injection and XSS attacks.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that Twitter is a generally trusted source and is unlikely to serve malicious content.

Commerce Extra Panes - Cross Site Request Forgery

This module, an add-on for Drupal Commerce, allows site builders to place one or more nodes in one of the checkout phases of an order.

The module doesn't sufficiently confirm the intent of a site builder when taking certain administrative operations. This could allow an attacker to trick an administrator into unknowingly enabling/disabled a Commerce extra panes pane.
