Two vulnerabilities have been reported in DokuWiki, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct script insertion attacks.
1) Missing permission checks when accessing page content in certain situations can be exploited by an authenticated user to view certain restricted pages.
Successful exploitation requires that Access Control Lists is enabled (disabled by default).
2) Input passed to the "Fullname" and "E-Mail" fields when updating the profile and the "login" parameter isn't properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious user data is viewed.
Solution: Update to the latest version (still dated 2006-03-09, but contains the fix).
