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-200601-13
(Gallery: Cross-site scripting vulnerability)
Peter Schumacher discovered that Gallery fails to sanitize the
fullname set by users, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting
By setting a specially crafted fullname, 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-1.5.2"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
webapp-config to finalize the update.
Threat Level: Low
