    Kazuhiro Nishiyama found a vulnerability in hiki, a Wiki engine written
    in Ruby, which could allow a remote attacker to delete arbitary files
    which are writable to the Hiki user, via a specially crafted session
    parameter.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    0.8.6-1etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version
    0.8.7-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your hiki (0.8.6-1etch1) package.
