Title: TikiWiki: Arbitrary command execution (GLSA 200501-12)
Date: January 10, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
A bug in TikiWiki allows certain users to upload and execute malicious PHP
TikiWiki is a web-based groupware and content management system (CMS),
using PHP, ADOdb and Smarty.
Vulnerable: < 126.96.36.199
Unaffected: >= 188.8.131.52
Architectures: All supported architectures
TikiWiki lacks a check on uploaded images in the Wiki edit page.
A malicious user could run arbitrary commands on the server by
uploading and calling a PHP script.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/tikiwiki-184.108.40.206"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
webapp-config to finalize the update.
