<p>
TikiWiki is a full featured Free Software Wiki, CMS and Groupware
written in PHP. eGroupWare is a web-based collaboration software suite.
Both TikiWiki and eGroupWare include a PHP library to handle XML-RPC
requests.

<description>
<p>
The XML-RPC library shipped in TikiWiki and eGroupWare improperly
handles XML-RPC requests and responses with malformed nested tags.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject
arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
crafted XML document to TikiWiki or eGroupWare.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All TikiWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.8.5-r2&quot;</code>
<p>
All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/egroupware-1.0.0.009&quot;</code>
