FreeBSD : dokuwiki -- multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities (7580f00e-280c-11e0-b7c8-00215c6a37bb)

High Nessus Plugin ID 51666


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


Dokuwiki reports :

This security update fixes problems in the XMLRPC interface where ACLs where not checked correctly sometimes, making it possible to access and write information that should not have been accessible/writable.
This only affects users who have enabled the XMLRPC interface (default is off) and have enabled XMLRPC access for users who can't access/write all content anyway (default is nobody, see for details).

This update also includes a fix for a problem in the general ACL checking function that could be exploited to gain access to restricted pages and media files in rare conditions (when you had rights for an id you could get the same rights on ids where one character has been replaced by a '.').


Update the affected package.
