Coppermine Photo Gallery EXIF Data XSS

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


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is vulnerable to
cross-site scripting attacks.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Coppermine Gallery installed
on the remote host is prone to cross-site scripting attacks because it
does not sanitize malicious EXIF data stored in image files. Using a
specially crafted image file, an attacker can exploit this flaw to
cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed in a user's
browser within the context of the affected application.
