Ubuntu 7.10 / 8.04 LTS : moodle vulnerability (USN-658-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Lukasz Pilorz discovered that the HTML filtering used in Moodle was
not strict enough. A remote attacker could send malicious requests to
Moodle and execute arbitrary code as the web server user.

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 moodle package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
