Debian Security Advisory DSA-1976-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Giuseppe Iuculano January 22, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : dokuwiki Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no Debian bugs : 565406 CVE Ids : CVE-2010-0287 CVE-2010-0288 CVE-2010-0289

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in dokuwiki, a standards compliant simple to use wiki. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


It was discovered that an internal variable is not properly sanitized before being used to list directories. This can be exploited to list contents of arbitrary directories.


It was discovered that the ACL Manager plugin doesn't properly check the administrator permissions. This allow an attacker to introduce arbitrary ACL rules and thus gaining access to a closed Wiki.


It was discovered that the ACL Manager plugin doesn't have protections against cross-site request forgeries (CSRF). This can be exploited to change the access control rules by tricking a logged in administrator into visiting a malicious web site.

The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 0.0.20080505-4+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.0.20090214b-3.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dokuwiki package.
