A vulnerability has been discovered in PhpWiki authentication mechanism.
|Package||www-apps/phpwiki on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.3.14|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.3.14|
PhpWiki is an application that creates a web site where anyone can edit the pages through HTML forms.
The PhpWiki development team reported an authentication error within the file lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an empty password.
A remote attacker could provide an empty password when authenticating. Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this could bypass the PhpWiki authentication mechanism and grant the attacker access to the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All PhpWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwiki-1.3.14"
