The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-10
(DokuWiki: Arbitrary command execution)
'rgod' discovered that DokuWiki doesn't sanitize the X-FORWARDED-FOR
HTTP header, allowing the injection of arbitrary contents - such as PHP
commands - into a file. Additionally, the accessory scripts installed

A remote attacker may execute arbitrary PHP (and thus probably system)
commands with the permissions of the user running the process serving
Disable remote access to the 'bin' subdirectory of the DokuWiki
installation. Remove the directory if you don't use the scripts in
