Synopsis
=======

There is a vulnerability in the Gallery photo album software which may allow an attacker to gain administrator privileges within Gallery.

Background
=========

Gallery is a web application written in PHP which is used to organize and publish photo albums. It allows multiple users to build and maintain their own albums. It also supports the mirroring of images on other servers.

Affected packages

Description
==========

There is a vulnerability in the Gallery photo album software which may allow an attacker to gain administrator privileges within Gallery. A Gallery administrator has full access to all albums and photos on the server, thus attackers may add or delete photos at will.

Impact

Workaround
=========

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version.

Resolution
