Description Matthias Geerdsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-02 11:13:00 UTC
From the Gallery website:
"Notice: The affects all versions of Gallery from 1.2 to this release:
We have discovered a well-hidden but potentially serious security flaw in these versions of Gallery which can allow a hacker to log in to your Gallery as an administrator and perform any actions on your albums. No risk is posed to the webserver-itself or any non-Gallery data. All Gallery users are very strongly urged to upgrade to 1.4.3-pl2 immediately, which fixes this serious problem and will secure your system."

Reproducible: Always

web-app folks: can you review/patch/bump as appropriate?
Comment 2 Joshua J. Berry (CondorDes) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-03 13:40:23 UTC
I will start drafting a GLSA for this.
Comment 3 Joshua J. Berry (CondorDes) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-03 14:34:24 UTC
Preliminary GLSA draft is in; just waiting for the ebuild and stabilization.

I don't use Gallery myself, so I unfortunately can't help with bumping it.
