GLSA-200501-45 : Gallery: XSS vulnerability
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 16436
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-45 (Gallery: XSS vulnerability)
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.
SolutionAll 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.
