Description Michael Davey 2005-10-19 14:35:46 UTC
A new release of TikiWiki is now available on version
for the 1.9 -Sirius- branch.

This maintainance release includes fixes for a recently identified security flaw.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
3. is available as a patch tarball to be applied over version 1.9.1 and as
a complete distribution.

Additionally, the Tiki community have recently marked the 1.9 branch as stable
and fit for production use, thus should ideally be the default
(unmasked) target for an emerge of the tikiwiki package.

If you need any assistance preparing or testing the ebuild, please do drop in on
<irc://> and ask - we are a friendly bunch ;)

Ready for GLSa vote
Comment 8 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-24 23:38:26 UTC
When running a wiki, one should be aware that they tend to be a bit insecure,
and since this is only a XSS, i'd say no.
Comment 9 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-25 00:53:50 UTC
I vote yes for XSS issues on internet-facing websites, and wikis are.
Comment 10 Tavis Ormandy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-25 06:03:39 UTC
I would agree with DerCorny, voting NO.
Comment 11 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-25 13:02:20 UTC
I vote YES, we did several previous GLSAs on these types of issues with these 
types of web apps or similar (webmail, groupware). 
Let the vote continue:-) 
Comment 12 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-26 01:29:23 UTC
Beh, everyone active voted. Let's say two yes win over two no's :)
