Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-25 (MoinMoin: Group ACL bypass)

MoinMoin contains two unspecified bugs, one allowing anonymous users
elevated access when not using ACLs, and the other in the ACL handling
in the PageEditor.

Impact :

Restrictions on anonymous users were not properly enforced. This could
lead to unauthorized users gaining administrative access to functions
such as
