Date: October 28, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #109858
ID: 200510-23

Synopsis

TikiWiki is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Background

TikiWiki is a web-based groupware and content management system (CMS), using PHP, ADOdb and Smarty.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/tikiwiki
Vulnerable: < 1.9.1.1
Unaffected: >= 1.9.1.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Due to improper input validation, TikiWiki can be exploited to perform cross-site scripting attacks.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit this to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

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-1.9.1.1"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use webapp-config to finalize the update.
