GLSA-200611-11 : TikiWiki: Multiple vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 23705


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


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200611-11 (TikiWiki: Multiple vulnerabilities)

In numerous files TikiWiki provides an empty sort_mode parameter, causing TikiWiki to display additional information, including database authentication credentials, in certain error messages. TikiWiki also improperly sanitizes the 'url' request variable sent to tiki-featured_link.php.
Impact :

An attacker could cause a database error in various pages of a TikiWiki instance by providing an empty sort_mode request variable, and gain unauthorized access to credentials of the MySQL databases used by TikiWiki. An attacker could also entice a user to browse to a specially crafted URL that could run scripts in the scope of the user's browser.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.9.6'
