Background
==========

TikiWiki is an open source content management system written in PHP.

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

GLSA 200710-21) was not properly fixed in TikiWiki 1.9.8.1
(CVE-2007-5682). The TikiWiki development team also added several
checks to avoid file inclusion.

arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
