    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gallery, a web-based
    photo album written in PHP4.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
    
    CAN-2004-1106
    
        Jim Paris discovered a cross site scripting vulnerability which
        allows code to be inserted by using specially formed URLs.
    
    CVE-NOMATCH
    
        The upstream developers of gallery have fixed several cases of
        possible variable injection that could trick gallery to unintended
        actions, e.g. leaking database passwords.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.5-8woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.4-pl4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gallery package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
