Version Summary:The WordPress Gallery plug-in contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to learn the path on the affected system. Updates are not available.
 

Description
 
A vulnerability in the NextGEN Gallery plug-in versions 1.9.10 and 1.9.11 of WordPress could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to learn the path on the affected system.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied input by the affected plug-in. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a malicious link. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause path disclosure and read arbitrary files to access sensitive information on the affected system.

Proof-of-concept code that exploits this vulnerability is publicly available.

To exploit the vulnerability, the attacker may provide a link that directs a user to a malicious site and use misleading language or instructions to persuade the user to follow the provided link.

Users are advised not to follow unsolicited links.

Administrators are advised to implement an intrusion prevention system (IPS) or intrusion detection system (IDS) to help detect and prevent attacks that attempt to exploit this vulnerability.

The vendor has not confirmed the vulnerability and software updates are not available.
