Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Gallery: Cross-site scripting vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-13

fullname set by users, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting
vulnerability.

and execute script code in the victim's browser window and potentially
compromise the user's gallery.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
