Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : moin vulnerabilities (USN-458-1)

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 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.

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

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)
