PHP commands, even without proper authentication.

DokuWiki is a simple to use wiki targeted at developer teams,
workgroups and small companies.
Stefan Esser discovered that the DokuWiki spell checker fails to
properly sanitize PHP's "complex curly syntax".
<impact type="high">
A unauthenticated remote attacker may execute arbitrary PHP commands -
and thus possibly arbitrary system commands - with the permissions of
the user running the webserver that serves DokuWiki pages.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All DokuWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/dokuwiki-20060309-r1&quot;</code>
