Hanno Boeck has discovered a vulnerability in PmWiki, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed via the "width" markup while creating a table is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is being viewed.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.2.15. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 2.2.16 or later.
