parameter of tiki-searchindex.php.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An attacker could execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running the web server by uploading a file and executing it via a
filepath parameter. The XSS could be exploited to inject and execute
malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication
credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
</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 --oneshot --verbose --ask &quot;&gt;=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.9.5&quot;</code>
</resolution>
