    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.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      its next update.
