Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tikiwiki: Arbitrary command execution
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-16
(Tikiwiki: Arbitrary command execution)
A vulnerability in jhot.php allows for an unrestricted file upload to
the img/wiki/ directory. Additionally, an XSS exists in the highlight
parameter of tiki-searchindex.php.
A possible hacker could execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running the web server by uploading a file and executing it via a
filepath parameter. The XSS could be exploited to inject and execute
malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication
credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Tikiwiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --oneshot --verbose --ask ">=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.9.5"
Threat Level: High
