Package        : gallery
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no

A problem was found in gallery (a web-based photo album toolkit): it
was possible to pass in the GALLERY_BASEDIR variable remotely. This
made it possible to execute commands under the uid of web-server.

This has been fixed in version 1.2.5-7 of the Debian package and upstream
version 1.3.1.
