Coppermine Vulnerability

Recommended Posts

A vulnerability has been reported in Coppermine Photo Gallery, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.


EXIF data stored in certain image files are not properly sanitised before being displayed to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when malicious EXIF data are viewed.


The vulnerability has been reported in versions prior to 1.3.4.


Get version 1.3.4 here

When you download the zip file from the link above

unzip to a folder on your computer

and go into the docs folder

and click on the index.html file

and look at the upgrade instructions.


3.4 Upgrading from cpg1.2.0 (or better) to version cpg1.3.4



I must be an idiot because I can't figure out how to do it from the instructions. I had to use the step by step instructions on the TCH help section to get Coppermine to work for me.


I wanna upgrade, but I still can't figure it out.


Can't you just unzip the the new version into your directory for each album? Like I had to with version 1.3.3?


I'm just so confused here :)

I think an upgrading tutorial could be a bit problematic to do since different upgrades are done differently, depending on what to update, sometimes its the whole package and sometimes just file or two that is changed.


But I will see if I can write down some usefull hints (since I did the original tutorial). :sly:

Hi Thomas,


That would be great and very much appreciated. I have upgraded Coppermine once but I am never quite sure if I fully understand the instructions. :D
