Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: TikiWiki: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200611-11)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 20, 2006
Bug(s): #153820
ID: 200611-11

Synopsis


TikiWiki allows for the disclosure of MySQL database authentication
credentials and for cross-site scripting attacks.


Background


TikiWiki is an open source content management system written in PHP.


Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/tikiwiki
Vulnerable: < 1.9.6
Unaffected: >= 1.9.6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


In numerous files TikiWiki provides an empty sort_mode parameter,
causing TikiWiki to display additional information, including database
authentication credentials, in certain error messages. TikiWiki also
improperly sanitizes the "url" request variable sent to
tiki-featured_link.php.


Impact


An attacker could cause a database error in various pages of a TikiWiki
instance by providing an empty sort_mode request variable, and gain
unauthorized access to credentials of the MySQL databases used by
TikiWiki. An attacker could also entice a user to browse to a specially
crafted URL that could run scripts in the scope of the user'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-1.9.6"
