Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 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 debug reporting sanitizer which
could lead to a cross-site scripting attack. By tricking a user into
viewing a crafted MoinMoin URL, 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.
Only Ubuntu Breezy was vulnerable. (CVE-2007-0901)

An information leak was discovered in MoinMoin's debug reporting,
which could expose information about the versions of software running
on the host system. MoinMoin administrators can add 'show_traceback=0'
to their site configurations to disable debug tracebacks.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
