A vulnerability has been reported in Coppermine Photo Gallery, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of file uploads where a filename has multiple file extensions. This can be exploited to upload malicious script files inside the web root (e.g. a PHP script).
Successful exploitation may allow execution of script code depending on the HTTP server configuration (it requires e.g. an Apache server with the "mod_mime" module installed).
The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.4.5. Prior versions may also be affected.
