Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60055


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


Secunia Research reports :

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in DokuWiki, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the 'ns' POST parameter in lib/exe/ajax.php (when 'call' is set to 'medialist' and 'do' is set to 'media') is not properly sanitised within the 'tpl_mediaFileList()' function in inc/template.php before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.


Update the affected package.
