Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : dokuwiki (MDVSA-2013:073)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Updated dokuwiki package fixes security vulnerabilities :

DokuWiki 2009-12-25c allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive
information via a direct request to a .php file, which reveals the
installation path in an error message, as demonstrated by
lib/tpl/index.php and certain other files (CVE-2011-3727).

A full path disclosure flaw was found in the way DokuWiki, a standards
compliant, simple to use Wiki, performed sanitization of HTTP POST
'prefix' input value prior passing it to underlying PHP substr()
routine, when the PHP error level has been enabled on the particular
server. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain full path
location of particular requested DokuWiki page by issuing a specially
crafted HTTP POST request (CVE-2012-3354).

Solution :

Update the affected dokuwiki package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
Public Exploit Available : true
