Title: Gallery: Cross-site scripting vulnerability (GLSA 200501-45)
Date: January 30, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Gallery is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
Gallery is a web application written in PHP which is used to organize
and publish photo albums. It allows multiple users to build and
maintain their own albums. It also supports the mirroring of images on
Vulnerable: < 1.4.4_p6
Unaffected: >= 1.4.4_p6
Architectures: All supported architectures
Rafel Ivgi has discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability where
the 'username' parameter is not properly sanitized in 'login.php'.
By sending a carefully crafted URL, an attacker can inject and execute
script code in the victim's browser window, and potentially compromise
the user's gallery.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Gallery users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/gallery-1.4.4_p6"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
webapp-config to finalize the update.
