    Synopsis
    ========

    TikiWiki includes PHP XML-RPC code, making it vulnerable to arbitrary
    command execution.

    Background
    ==========

    TikiWiki is a web-based groupware and content management system (CMS),
    using PHP, ADOdb and Smarty. TikiWiki includes vulnerable PHP XML-RPC
    code.

    Affected packages

      1 www-apps/tikiwiki < 1.8.5-r1 >= 1.8.5-r1

    Description
    ===========

    TikiWiki is vulnerable to arbitrary command execution as described in
    GLSA 200507-01.

    Impact
    ======

    A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
    PHP code by sending specially crafted XML data.

    Workaround

    Resolution
