Debian Security Advisory DSA-1553-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
June 01, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ikiwiki
Vulnerability : cross-site request forgery
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0165
Debian Bug : 475445

The update of ikiwiki in DSA-1553-1 caused two regressions. An updated
version of ikiwiki is available that fixes these problems. For reference,
the full advisory text is below.

It has been discovered that ikiwiki, a Wiki implementation, does not
guard password and content changes against cross-site request forgery
(CSRF) attacks.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.33.6.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.42.

We recommend that you upgrade your ikiwiki package.
