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 error reporting when using the
AttachFile action. 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. (CVE-2007-2423)

Flaws were discovered in MoinMoin's ACL handling for calendars and
includes. Unauthorized users would be able to read pages that would
otherwise be unavailable to them.

Solution :

Update the affected moinmoin-common, python-moinmoin and / or
python2.4-moinmoin packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
