Debian DLA-812-1 : ikiwiki security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 96911


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Several vulnerabilities have been found in ikiwiki, a wiki compiler :


Commit metadata forgery


Authorization bypass when reverting changes


Authentication bypass via repeated parameters

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.20120629.2+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your ikiwiki packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected ikiwiki package.
