All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in TikiWiki, some of them
having unknown impact.
TikiWiki is an open source content management system written in PHP.
- Jesus Olmos Gonzalez from isecauditors reported insufficient
sanitization of the "movies" parameter in file tiki-listmovies.php
- Mesut Timur from H-Labs discovered that the
input passed to the "area_name" parameter in file
tiki-special_chars.php is not properly sanitised before being returned
to the user (CVE-2007-6526).
- redflo reported multiple
unspecified vulnerabilities in files tiki-edit_css.php,
tiki-list_games.php, and tiki-g-admin_shared_source.php
A remote attacker can craft the "movies" parameter to run a directory
traversal attack through a ".." sequence and read the first 1000 bytes
of any arbitrary file, or conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack
through the "area_name" parameter. This attack can be exploited to
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session,
allowing for the theft of browser session data or cookies in the
context of the affected web site. The impacts of the unspecified
vulnerabilities are still unknown.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
