Stefan Esser has reported a vulnerability in Piwik, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the core/Cookie.php script using "unserialize()" with user controlled input. This can be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary PHP code via the "__wakeup()" or "__destruct()" methods of a serialized object passed via an HTTP cookie.
The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 0.5.
Solution: Update to version 0.5 or later.
