Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PhpWiki: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC (GLSA 200508-18)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 26, 2005
Bug(s): #102380
ID: 200508-18

Synopsis

PhpWiki includes PHP XML-RPC code which is vulnerable to arbitrary command execution.

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: < 1.3.10-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.3.10-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Earlier versions of PhpWiki contain an XML-RPC library that 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 PhpWiki.

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-1.3.10-r2"
