[GLSA-200501-45] Gallery: Cross-site scripting vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Gallery: Cross-site scripting vulnerability
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-45
(Gallery: Cross-site scripting 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, a possible hacker 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.
All 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.
Threat Level: Low
