Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200709-10

the file lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an
empty password.

Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this could bypass the
PhpWiki authentication mechanism and grant the attacker access to the
application.
