Package : moin Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-2423 CVE-2007-2637 CVE-2008-0780 CVE-2008-0781 CVE-2008-0782 CVE-2008-1098 CVE-2008-1099

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in MoinMoin, a Python clone of WikiWiki. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
attachment handling.


Access control lists for calendars and includes were
insufficiently enforced, which could lead to information


A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
the login code.


A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
attachment handling.


A directory traversal vulnerability in cookie handling could
lead to local denial of service by overwriting files.


Cross-site-scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
the GUI editor formatter and the code to delete pages.


The macro code validates access control lists insufficiently,
which could lead to information disclosure.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.3-1.2etch1. This update also includes a bugfix wrt the encoding of password reminder mails, which doesn't have security implications.

The old stable distribution (sarge) will not be updated due to the many changes and support for Sarge ending end of this month anyway. You're advised to upgrade to the stable distribution if you run moinmoin.

We recommend that you upgrade your moin package.
