Package : dokuwiki
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bugs : 565406
CVE Ids : CVE-2010-0287 CVE-2010-0288 CVE-2010-0289

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in dokuwiki, a standards compliant
simple to use wiki.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:


It was discovered that an internal variable is not properly sanitized before
being used to list directories. This can be exploited to list contents of
arbitrary directories.


It was discovered that the ACL Manager plugin doesn't properly check the
administrator permissions. This allow an attacker to introduce arbitrary ACL
rules and thus gaining access to a closed Wiki.


It was discovered that the ACL Manager plugin doesn't have protections against
cross-site request forgeries (CSRF). This can be exploited to change the
access control rules by tricking a logged in administrator into visiting
a malicious web site.

The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.0.20080505-4+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.0.20090214b-3.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dokuwiki package.
