Details

DokuWiki version 2014-09-29c (and probably prior) is vulnerable to Persistent Cross Site Scriptng in the admin page.

An attacker may use this vulnerability to execute javascript in the context of a logged admin user. 
Since the vulnerable page has forms with the CSRF token (the same for all requests), a full backend compromise may be possible.

To successfully exploit this vulenrability an attacked must:
	1. have an account on the target site
	2. trick and admin to visit a link or to edit user account


Proof of concept:

1. change your account real name to:
	my name" autofocus onfocus="alert('code executed')

2. login as admin and try to edit the user profile from User Manager


Solution

Apply the latest hotfix from vendor's site
