Package        : phpwiki
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-2024 CVE-2007-2025 CVE-2007-3193
Debian Bug     : 429201 441390

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpWiki, a wiki engine
written in PHP. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-2024

    It was discovered that phpWiki performs insufficient file name 
    validation, which allows unrestricted file uploads.

CVE-2007-2025

    It was discovered that phpWiki performs insufficient file name 
    validation, which allows unrestricted file uploads.

CVE-2007-3193

    If the configuration lacks a nonzero PASSWORD_LENGTH_MINIMUM,
    phpWiki might allow remote attackers to bypass authentication via
    an empty password, which causes ldap_bind to return true when used
    with certain LDAP implementations.


The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain phpwiki packages.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.12p3-5etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.12p3-6.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
