    Package        : gallery
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2596
    
    A bug in gallery has been discoverd that grants all registrated
    postnuke users full access to the gallery.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gallery package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
