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.
