Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw was discovered in MoinMoin's page name sanitizer which could
lead to a cross-site scripting attack. By tricking a user into viewing
a crafted MoinMoin page, an attacker could execute arbitrary
JavaScript as the current MoinMoin user, possibly exposing the user's
authentication information for the domain where MoinMoin was hosted.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
