Package        : gallery2
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.


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
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
