Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

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 'revert' and 'delete'. Sites are vulnerable whether or not they
are using ACLs.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround.
