DokuWiki fetch.php HTTP response splitting
|dokuwiki-fetch-response-splitting (31930)||Medium Risk|
DokuWiki is vulnerable to HTTP response splitting attacks, caused by improper validation of input passed to the lib/exe/fetch.php script. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the media parameter in a specially-crafted URL to cause the server to return a split response, once the URL is clicked. This would allow the attacker to perform further attacks, such as Web cache poisoning, cross-site scripting, and possibly obtain sensitive information.
