<background>
<p>
PhpWiki is an application that creates a web site where anyone can
edit the pages through HTML forms.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
Earlier versions of PhpWiki contain an XML-RPC library that
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 PhpWiki.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All PhpWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/phpwiki-1.3.10-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
