Fix remote access to images accidentally blocked by Cve 2017 5982 patch #14783
Unfortunately the protection implemented for the CVE 2017 5982 exploit #14501 is still blocking valid remote access to some images, which means missing artwork on Chorus and Kore etc.
Adust it to allow web server and JSON API access to images:
You are welcome @wsnipex. FWIW the Artist Info folder was added eariler in v18 to handle local artist art where it isn't possible to organise all music files involving an artist under one unique folder.
Of course this doesn't solve the issue web server access to all images. The problem is art used by Kodi can be anywhere the user chooses, it has never been limited to just Kodi folders and media sources (although that is the most common place). There will be users that notice missing images in apps that talk to Kodi, be they PVR icons or the odd album cover, because they are located somewhere that isn't also a media source or nominated folder. For v18 all we can suggest is that they move them somewhere that is.
