Description Martin Prpič 2015-03-02 16:56:03 UTC
The following security-related flaw has been fixed in the 2014-09-29c release (of 2015-02-25) of dokuwiki:

  "Security Hotfix 2014-09-29c: fixes privilege escalation in RPC API"

Details per upstream issue:

There's a security hole in the ACL plugins remote API component. The plugin failes to check for superuser permissions before executing ACL addition or deletion. This means everybody with permissions to call the XMLRPC API also has permissions to set up their own ACL rules and thus circumventing any existing rules.
