GLSA-200709-10 : PhpWiki: Authentication bypass
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 26100
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200709-10 (PhpWiki: Authentication bypass)
The PhpWiki development team reported an authentication error within the file lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an empty password.
A remote attacker could provide an empty password when authenticating.
Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this could bypass the PhpWiki authentication mechanism and grant the attacker access to the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll PhpWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/phpwiki-1.3.14'
