Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Moodle, an online course management system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2009-4297 Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities have been discovered.

  • CVE-2009-4298 It has been discovered that the LAMS module is prone to the disclosure of user account information.

  • CVE-2009-4299 The Glossary module has an insufficient access control mechanism.

  • CVE-2009-4301 Moodle does not properly check permissions when the MNET service is enabled, which allows remote authenticated servers to execute arbitrary MNET functions.

  • CVE-2009-4302 The login/index_form.html page links to an HTTP page instead of using an SSL secured connection.

  • CVE-2009-4303 Moodle stores sensitive data in backup files, which might make it possible for attackers to obtain them.

  • CVE-2009-4305 It has been discovered that the SCORM module is prone to a SQL injection.

Additionally, a SQL injection in the update_record function, a problem with symbolic links and a verification problem with Glossary, database and forum ratings have been fixed.

we recommend to upgrade to the lenny version."
