I run an open wiki for personal use, so I disabled security (jspwiki.security=off in jspwiki.properties).

Trying to attach a file causes a NullPointerException in AuthorizationManager.checkPermission(WikiSession,Permission), because AllPermissions.getActions() returns null:

if (permission == null ||(permission.getActions().equals("login")))
   return false;
I flipped the .equals:
if (permission == null || ("login".equals(permission.getActions())))
I think this maintains the correct behaviour in secured wiki's, and fixes the bug in non-secured wiki's.

Fixed in 2.5.40
