    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-4650
    
    Nicklous Roberts discovered that the Reupload module of Gallery 2, a web
    based photo management application, allowed unauthorized users to edit
    Gallery's data file.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) does not contain a gallery2 package.
    The previous gallery package is not affected by this vulnerability.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.2-2.0.etch.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gallery2 package.
