FreeBSD : Gallery 1.4.3 and ealier user authentication bypass (253ea131-bd12-11d8-b071-00e08110b673)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 38140
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


A flaw exists in Gallery versions previous to 1.4.3-pl1 and post 1.2 which may give an attacker the potential to log in under the 'admin' account. Data outside of the gallery is unaffected and the attacker cannot modify any data other than the photos or photo albums.


Update the affected package.
