Hello Brian...

thank you for reminding me on this matter.

The reports on smartor photo album http://www.osvdb.org/15933 and 
http://www.osvdb.org/15932 state, that a varibale named BSID (which most should 
be related to the session-ID-controll in phpBB) is not validated. I talked to 
smartor and worked with that very script for myself for quite some time. 
Smartor said, that he never used BSID.. thus it cannot be transmitted. I myself 
verified this in all files and code comming with Smartor's Photo Album Hack.

If there's a not validated var called BSID it is most likely part of some addon 
for the photo album and not part of the original code. Thus I think it is not 
right to list the above mentioned item in the database..

Thank you
