Synopsis
========

DokuWiki is vulnerable to shell command injection and Denial of Service
attacks when using ImageMagick.

Background
==========

DokuWiki is a wiki targeted at developer teams, workgroups and small
companies. It does not use a database backend.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 www-apps/dokuwiki lt; 20060309e gt;= 20060309e=


Description
===========

Input validation flaws have been discovered in the image handling of
fetch.php if ImageMagick is used, which is not the default method.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could exploit the flaws to execute arbitrary shell
commands with the rights of the web server daemon or cause a Denial of
Service.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All DokuWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "gt;=www-apps/dokuwiki-20060309e"=
