DESCRIPTION:
Janek Vind has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the GRAND
FlAGallery plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious
users to conduct SQL injection attacks and compromise a vulnerable
system and by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

1) Input passed to the "settingsXML" parameter in
wp-content/plugins/flash-album-gallery/admin/skin_options.php (when
"properties_skin" is set and "mainXML" is set to desired php code) is
not properly verified in admin/skin_options.php before being used to
write to a file. This can be exploited to save and execute arbitrary
PHP code using directory traversal sequences.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires "Editor" with
"Change skin" privilege.

2) Input passed via the "album_id" POST parameter to
wp-admin/admin-ajax.php (when "action" is set to "flag_save_album"
and "album_name" is set) is not properly sanitised before being used
in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by
injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires "Editor" with
"Manage gallery" privilege.

3) Input passed to the "orderby" parameter of the flagallery
shortcode (when "gid" is set to "all") while creating a new post is
not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires privilege to
create a post.

4) The wp-content/plugins/flash-album-gallery/facebook.php script
returns different responses depending on whether or not a directory
exists. This can be exploited to check existence of directories.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.00. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
No official solution is currently available.
