Debian DSA-1639-1 : twiki - command execution

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 34246


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that twiki, a web-based collaboration platform, didn't properly sanitize the image parameter in its configuration script. This could allow remote users to execute arbitrary commands upon the system, or read any files which were readable by the webserver user.


Upgrade the twiki package.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:4.0.5-9.1etch1.
