Larry Nguyen discovered a cross site scripting vulnerability in gallery, a web-based photo album written in php. This security flaw can allow a malicious user to craft a URL that executes Javascript code on your website.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.25-8woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.4-3.

We recommend that you update your gallery package.
