Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

An input sanitation error in DokuWiki might lead to the dislosure of
local files or even the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

DokuWiki is a standards compliant Wiki system written in PHP.

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

girex reported that data from the "config_cascade" parameter in
inc/init.php is not properly sanitized before being used.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute PHP code
from arbitrary local, or, when the used PHP version supports ftp://
URLs, also from remote files via FTP. Furthermore, it is possible to
disclose the contents of local files. NOTE: Successful exploitation
requires the PHP option "register_globals" to be enabled.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Disable "register_globals" in php.ini.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All DokuWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose =3Dwww-apps/dokuwiki-2009-02-14b
