This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200801-10
(TikiWiki: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Jesus Olmos Gonzalez from isecauditors reported insufficient
sanitization of the 'movies' parameter in file tiki-listmovies.php
Mesut Timur from H-Labs discovered that the
input passed to the 'area_name' parameter in file
tiki-special_chars.php is not properly sanitised before being returned
to the user (CVE-2007-6526).
redflo reported multiple
unspecified vulnerabilities in files tiki-edit_css.php,
tiki-list_games.php, and tiki-g-admin_shared_source.php

Impact :

A remote attacker can craft the 'movies' parameter to run a directory
traversal attack through a '..' sequence and read the first 1000 bytes
of any arbitrary file, or conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack
through the 'area_name' parameter. This attack can be exploited to
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session,
allowing for the theft of browser session data or cookies in the
context of the affected website. The impacts of the unspecified
vulnerabilities are still unknown.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
