 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:073
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : dokuwiki
 Date    : April 8, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated dokuwiki package fixes security vulnerabilities:
 
 DokuWiki 2009-12-25c allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive
 information via a direct request to a .php file, which reveals
 the installation path in an error message, as demonstrated by
 lib/tpl/index.php and certain other files (CVE-2011-3727).
 
 A full path disclosure flaw was found in the way DokuWiki, a
 standards compliant, simple to use Wiki, performed sanitization of
 HTTP POST 'prefix' input value prior passing it to underlying PHP
 substr() routine, when the PHP error level has been enabled on the
 particular server. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain
 full path location of particular requested DokuWiki page by issuing
 a specially-crafted HTTP POST request (CVE-2012-3354).
