Package        : gallery
Vulnerability  : unauthenticated access
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

A vulnerability was discovered in gallery, a web-based photo album
written in php, whereby a remote attacker could gain access to the
gallery "admin" user without proper authentication.  No CVE candidate
was available for this vulnerability at the time of release.

For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
fixed in version 1.2.5-8woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.3-pl2-1.

We recommend that you update your gallery package.
