GLSA-200601-13 : Gallery: XSS vulnerability

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20815


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


The 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.
Impact :

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.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All 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.
