<background>
<p>
PhpWiki is an application that creates a web site where anyone can edit
the pages through HTML forms.
</p>

<description>
<p>
The PhpWiki development team reported an authentication error within
the file lib/WikiUser/LDAP.php when binding to an LDAP server with an
empty password.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
A remote attacker could provide an empty password when authenticating.
Depending on the LDAP implementation used, this could bypass the
PhpWiki authentication mechanism and grant the attacker access to the
application.
</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-1.3.14&quot;</code>
</resolution>
