GLSA-200704-08 : DokuWiki: XSS vulnerability

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 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-200704-08
(DokuWiki: XSS 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'
