[GLSA-200606-16] DokuWiki: PHP code injection Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
DokuWiki: PHP code injection
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-16
(DokuWiki: PHP code injection)
Stefan Esser discovered that the DokuWiki spell checker fails to
properly sanitize PHP's "complex curly syntax".
A unauthenticated remote attacker may execute arbitrary PHP commands -
and thus possibly arbitrary system commands - with the permissions of
the user running the webserver that serves DokuWiki pages.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All DokuWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/dokuwiki-20060309-r1"
Threat Level: High
