<background>
<p>
TikiWiki is an open source content management system written in PHP.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
In numerous files TikiWiki provides an empty sort_mode parameter,
causing TikiWiki to display additional information, including database
authentication credentials, in certain error messages. TikiWiki also
improperly sanitizes the "url" request variable sent to
tiki-featured_link.php.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could cause a database error in various pages of a TikiWiki
instance by providing an empty sort_mode request variable, and gain
unauthorized access to credentials of the MySQL databases used by
TikiWiki. An attacker could also entice a user to browse to a specially
crafted URL that could run scripts in the scope of the user'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 --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/tikiwiki-1.9.6&quot;</code>
</resolution>
