TikiWiki < 1.8.6 / 1.9.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in TikiWiki < 1.8.6 / 1.9.1

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

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

The version of TikiWiki installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'language' parameter of the 'tiki-user_preferences.php'
script before using it in a PHP 'include' function. An authenticated
attacker can leverage this issue by specifying a path with directory
traversal sequences to read arbitrary files and possibly execute
arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.

In addition, it also fails to sanitize input to the 'suck_url'
parameter of the 'tiki-editpage.php' script before using it to read
files. With a specially-crafted request, an unauthenticated attacker
can exploit this issues to read arbitrary files on the remote host.
