Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: TikiWiki, eGroupWare: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC (GLSA 200508-14)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 24, 2005
Bug(s): #102374, #102377
ID: 200508-14

Synopsis


TikiWiki and eGroupWare both include PHP XML-RPC code vulnerable to
arbitrary command execution.


Background


TikiWiki is a full featured Free Software Wiki, CMS and Groupware
written in PHP. eGroupWare is a web-based collaboration software suite.
Both TikiWiki and eGroupWare include a PHP library to handle XML-RPC
requests.


Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/tikiwiki
Vulnerable: < 1.8.5-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.8.5-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: www-apps/egroupware
Vulnerable: < 1.0.0.009
Unaffected: >= 1.0.0.009
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


The XML-RPC library shipped in TikiWiki and eGroupWare improperly
handles XML-RPC requests and responses with malformed nested tags.


Impact


A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject
arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
crafted XML document to TikiWiki or eGroupWare.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.8.5-r2"

All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/egroupware-1.0.0.009"
