And thanks for writing them... I've found them useful when doing my own Gallery setup, and I know a lot of customers have found them useful. We love it when our customers do our work for us. :> As soon as we get some better DreamHost swag, I'll try to make sure you get some...
(an aside - anyone have a workaround to the problems caused from magic quotes being on in our PHP config?)
And to the people who have to clean up the mess. :>
I know it's easy to be lazy about stuff like this - I'm certainly guilty of that at times. But especially when PHP is running as a CGI, cross site scripting holes can let attackers do some pretty major damage. We're working on ways to minimize this, but please, please, pretty please, with lumps of sugar on top... keep your software up to date. If a vendor has a list for security updates / general software updates for any third party software you use, please subscribe to it.
