Possible superglobal and local variables manipulation in swekey authentication.
It was possible to manipulate the PHP superglobals (including SESSION) using some of the Swekey authentication code. Also, variables local to the affected Swekey function were at risk. This is similar to PMASA-2011-5.
We consider this vulnerability to be critical.
The Swekey authentication mechanism must be activated (which is not a requirement in the case of PMASA-2011-5).
The 126.96.36.199 and earlier versions are affected.
Branch 2.11.x is not affected by this.
