Gallery < 2.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for IP spoofing in Gallery

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple flaws.

Description :

The remote host is running Gallery, a web-based photo album
application written in PHP.

The version of Gallery installed on the remote host allows a possible hacker
to spoof his IP address with a bogus 'X_FORWARDED_FOR' HTTP header.
An authenticated attacker can reportedly leverage this flaw to launch
cross-site scripting attacks by adding comments to a photo as well as
other attacks.

In addition, the application reportedly fails to validate a session id
before using it, which can be used to delete arbitrary files on the
remote host subject to the rights of the web server user id.
