Gallery is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
|Package||www-apps/gallery on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.4.4_p4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.4.4_p4|
Gallery is a web application written in PHP which is used to organize and publish photo albums. It allows multiple users to build and maintain their own albums. It also supports the mirroring of images on other servers.
Jim Paris has discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in Gallery.
By sending a carefully crafted URL, an attacker can inject and execute script code in the victim's browser window, and potentially compromise the users 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_p4"
