Gallery PostNuke Integration Access Validation Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that does not
properly validate access.

Description :

The remote host is running Gallery, a web-based photo album.

According to its banner, the version of Gallery installed on the
remote host is subject to an access validation issue when integrated
with PostNuke, as is the case on the remote host. The issue means
that any user with any level of admin privileges in PostNuke also has
admin privileges in Gallery.
