It was discovered that phpWiki performs insufficient file name validation, which allows unrestricted file uploads.

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpWiki, a wiki engine
written in PHP. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-2024

    It was discovered that phpWiki performs insufficient file name 
    validation, which allows unrestricted file uploads.

CVE-2007-2025

    It was discovered that phpWiki performs insufficient file name 
    validation, which allows unrestricted file uploads.

CVE-2007-3193

    If the configuration lacks a nonzero PASSWORD_LENGTH_MINIMUM,
    phpWiki might allow remote attackers to bypass authentication via
    an empty password, which causes ldap_bind to return true when used
    with certain LDAP implementations.


The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain phpwiki packages.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.12p3-5etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.12p3-6.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
