Disclosure Date


PhotoPost Pro contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The problem is that the 'reportpost' action in 'misc.php' does not limit the logging data that is sent to the administrator, which may allow a remote attacker to send an unlimited amount of mails to the administrator.
