Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PhpWiki: Authentication bypass (GLSA 200709-10)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 18, 2007
Bug(s): #181692
ID: 200709-10

Synopsis

A vulnerability has been discovered in PhpWiki authentication mechanism.

Background

PhpWiki is an application that creates a web site where anyone can edit the pages through HTML forms.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/phpwiki
Vulnerable: < 1.3.14
Unaffected: >= 1.3.14
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The PhpWiki development team reported an authentication error within the file lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an empty password.

Impact

A remote attacker could provide an empty password when authenticating. Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this could bypass the PhpWiki authentication mechanism and grant the attacker access to the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All PhpWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwiki-1.3.14"
