New gallery packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gallery, a web-based photo album written in PHP4. Jim Paris discovered a cross site scripting vulnerability which allows code to be inserted by using specially formed URLs. The upstream developers of gallery have fixed several cases of possible variable injection that could trick gallery to unintended actions, e.g. leaking database passwords. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
