Ubuntu Security Notice USN-774-1               May 11, 2009
moin vulnerability

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
  python-moinmoin                 1.7.1-1ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 9.04:
  python-moinmoin                 1.8.2-2ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input when
attaching files, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.
With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into
viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker
could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data,
within the same domain.
