Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-05-13 09:52:09 EDT
A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Movie controller of Gallery, an open source project with the goal to develop and support leading photo sharing web application solutions, performed sanitization of certain movie title arguments, when saving movies. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page that, when visited by valid Gallery user, would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of particular Gallery user's session.

Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-05-13 10:04:18 EDT
This issue did NOT affect the versions of the gallery2 package, as shipped with Fedora release of 17, 18, and Fedora EPEL-5, as they did NOT contain the vulnerable code part / functionality yet.
