DokuWiki dwpage.php Accessibility Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks whether DocuWiki dwpage.php is accessible via http

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that should be removed or
protected.

Description :

The remote host is running DokuWiki, an open-source wiki application
written in PHP.

The installed version of DokuWiki includes a script, 'bin/dwpage.php',
that is intended as a commandline tool for modifying pages. By
accessing it through the web, an unauthenticated remote attacker can
abuse it to view local files and even execute arbitrary code, both
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
