GLSA-200704-08 : DokuWiki: Cross-site scripting vulnerability

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-08
(DokuWiki: Cross-site scripting vulnerability)

DokuWiki does not sanitize user input to the GET variable 'media' in
the fetch.php file.

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to click a specially crafted link and
inject CRLF characters into the variable. This would allow the creation
of new lines or fields in the returned HTTP Response header, which
would permit the attacker to execute arbitrary scripts in the context
of the user's browser.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/dokuwiki-20061106'

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
