#2296 closed defect (wontfix)

checking input before use

Reported by: lasse@… Owned by: Noah Kantrowitz
Priority: high Component: WikiRenamePlugin
Severity: critical Keywords: input checking
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


Sins rename_page function does not check the content of oldname and newname you can use this plugin to much more than just renaming wiki pages..

if you have "lost" your admin rights .. this would be a quick fix..

just rename a page
from: "blahblah'; INSERT INTO permission (username, action) VALUES ('lasse', 'TRAC_ADMIN');"
to: "blahblah2"

Some filtering should probably be done on the input..

Hi, I'm a bit puzzled because I tried to replicate the exploit but it doesn't seem to work in my local installation. That's supposed to be good but I'm still worried.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Replying to dagomez:

hmm .. well the last line states that it wont execute more than one statement at a time, so either this is specific to sqlite (I use MySQL) or you are using a different version of trac than me.
