Akira Tanaka discovered a vulnerability in Hiki Wiki, a Wiki engine
written in Ruby that allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service via high CPU consumption using by performing a diff between
large and specially crafted Wiki pages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.5-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your hiki package.
