GLSA-200601-13 : Gallery: XSS vulnerability
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20815
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-13 (Gallery: XSS vulnerability)
Peter Schumacher discovered that Gallery fails to sanitize the fullname set by users, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
By setting a specially crafted fullname, 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-1.5.2' Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use webapp-config to finalize the update.
