phpGraphy EXIF Data XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
cross-site scripting issue.

Description :

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

According to its banner, the version of phpGraphy installed on the
remote host is prone to script insertion 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.

Solution :

While we are unaware of any public statement from the project,
upgrading to phpGraphy 0.9.10 or later reportedly addresses the
issue.
