gallery3: XSS in Movie controller due improper sanitization of (certain) movie title(s) when saving movies
Last modified: 2016-03-04 06:44:51 EST
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.
Relevant upstream patch:
This issue affects the versions of the gallery3 package, as shipped with Fedora release of 17, 18, and Fedora EPEL-6. Please schedule an update.
Created gallery3 tracking bugs for this issue
Affects: fedora-all [bug 962440]
Affects: epel-6 [bug 962441]
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.
