A vulnerability has been reported in PhpWiki, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error within lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an empty password. Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this can be exploited to bypass the authentication mechanism.

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 1.3.13p1.

Update to version 1.3.13p1.

web-apps, there's version 1.3.13_rc1 in the tree, is it the same as upstream version 1.3.13p1? And if not, does it still fix this issue?
Comment 6 Gunnar Wrobel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-08-09 10:09:32 UTC
Sorry for the delay again. I checked in 1.3.13_rc1 and removed the problematic UpLoad.php. So 1.3.13_r1 should be without the issue.

Today I also checked in 1.3.14 and verified that the code in UpLoad.php has been fixed. 

My preference would be to stabilize 1.3.14 and remove all older ebuild.

Well, i confused this with bug #174451. But the security issue mentioned here has also been fixed in 1.3.14. 
Comment 8 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-08-09 11:14:16 UTC
Thanks Gunnar. fixing severity since some arches were stable.
Arches (or should I say ppc :) please test and mark stable www-apps/phpwiki-1.3.14. Target keywords are: "ppc ~sparc ~x86 ~amd64"
