Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-07-04 09:05:31 UTC
A security flaw was found in the way flowplayer SWF file handling functionality of Gallery version 3, an open source project with the goal to develop and support leading photo sharing web application solutions, processed certain URL fragments passed to this file (certain URL fragments were not stripped properly when these files were called via direct URL request(s)). A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct replay attacks.

A different vulnerability than CVE-2013-2138.
