Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-1613 CVE-2010-1614 CVE-2010-1615 CVE-2010-1616 CVE-2010-1617 CVE-2010-1618 CVE-2010-1619 
CVE-2010-2228 CVE-2010-2229 CVE-2010-2230 CVE-2010-2231

DSA-2115-1 introduced a regression because it lacked a dependency on
the wwwconfig-common package, leading to installations problems.  This
update addresses this issue.  For reference, the text of the original
advisory is provided below.

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

CVE-2010-1613
        Moodle does not enable the "Regenerate session id during
        login" setting by default, which makes it easier for remote
        attackers to conduct session fixation attacks.

CVE-2010-1614
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow
        remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via
        vectors related to (1) the Login-As feature or (2) when the
        global search feature is enabled, unspecified global search
        forms in the Global Search Engine.

CVE-2010-1615
        Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers
        to execute arbitrary SQL commands via vectors related to (1)
        the add_to_log function in mod/wiki/view.php in the wiki
        module, or (2) "data validation in some forms elements"
        related to lib/form/selectgroups.php.

CVE-2010-1616
        Moodle can create new roles when restoring a course, which
        allows teachers to create new accounts even if they do not
        have the moodle/user:create capability.

CVE-2010-1617
        user/view.php does not properly check a role, which allows
        remote authenticated users to obtain the full names of other
        users via the course profile page.

CVE-2010-1618
        A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the phpCAS
        client library allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
        script or HTML via a crafted URL, which is not properly
        handled in an error message.

CVE-2010-1619
        A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the
        fix_non_standard_entities function in the KSES HTML text
        cleaning library (weblib.php) allows remote attackers to
        inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted HTML entities.

CVE-2010-2228
        A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the MNET
        access-control interface allows remote attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors involving extended
        characters in a username.

CVE-2010-2229
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in
        blog/index.php allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
        script or HTML via unspecified parameters.

CVE-2010-2230
        The KSES text cleaning filter in lib/weblib.php does
        not properly handle vbscript URIs, which allows remote
        authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS)
        attacks via HTML input.

CVE-2010-2231
        A Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in
        report/overview/report.php in the quiz module allows remote
        attackers to hijack the authentication of arbitrary users for
        requests that delete quiz attempts via the attemptid
        parameter.

This security update switches to a new upstream version and requires
database updates.  After installing the fixed package, you must visit
<http://localhost/moodle/admin/> and follow the update instructions.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.13-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.9.dfsg2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your moodle package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
