The latest versions of Drupal also include security updates to address a jQuery vulnerability. The Moderately critical Cross Site Scripting flaw resides in the jQuery.extend() function.”
“It’s possible that this vulnerability is exploitable with some Drupal modules.” reads the security advisory published by Drupal. “As a precaution, this Drupal security release backports the fix to jQuery.extend(), without making any other changes to the jQuery version that is included in Drupal core (3.2.1 for Drupal 8 and 1.4.4 for Drupal 7) or running on the site via some other module such as jQuery Update,”
Drupal addressed the flaw with the release of versions 8.6.15, 8.5.15 and 7.66.
