Description Jean-François Brunette (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-21 06:02:13 UTC
similar to the previous one (

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in TikiWiki, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to missing validation of files placed in the "temp" directory and can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP scripts.

The vulnerabilities have been reported in versions prior to 1.8.5 and 1.9 DR4.

Update to version 1.8.5.

Deny access to the "temp" directory.
