Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200811-02
(Gallery: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Gallery 1 and 2:
Digital Security Research Group reported a directory traversal
vulnerability in contrib/phpBB2/modules.php in Gallery 1, when
register_globals is enabled (CVE-2008-3600).
Hanno Boeck reported that Gallery 1 and 2 did not set the secure flag
for the session cookie in an HTTPS session (CVE-2008-3662).
Alex Ustinov reported that Gallery 1 and 2 does not properly handle ZIP
archives containing symbolic links (CVE-2008-4129).
The vendor reported a Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability in Gallery 2

Impact :

Remote attackers could send specially crafted requests to a server
running Gallery, allowing for the execution of arbitrary code when
register_globals is enabled, or read arbitrary files via directory
traversals otherwise. Attackers could also entice users to visit
crafted links allowing for theft of login credentials.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
