FreeBSD : dokuwiki -- XSS vulnerability in spellchecker backend (cddde37a-39b5-11dc-b3da-001921ab2fa4)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

DokuWiki reports :

The spellchecker tests the UTF-8 capabilities of the used browser by
sending an UTF-8 string to the backend, which will send it back
unfiltered. By comparing string length the spellchecker can work
around broken implementations. An attacker could construct a form to
let users send JavaScript to the spellchecker backend, resulting in
malicious JavaScript being executed in their browser.

Affected are all versions up to and including 2007-06-26 even when the
spell checker is disabled.
