    Package : gallery
    Vulnerability : programming error
    Problem type : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID : CVE-2005-2596

    A bug in gallery has been discoverd that grants all registrated
    postnuke users full access to the gallery.

    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5-1sarge1.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5-2.

    We recommend that you upgrade your gallery package.

    Upgrade Instructions

            will fetch the file for you

    sources.list as given below:
