Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that several wiki actions and preference settings in
MoinMoin were not protected from cross-site request forgery (CSRF). If
an authenticated user were tricked into visiting a malicious website
while logged into MoinMoin, a remote attacker could change the user's
configuration or wiki content. (CVE-2010-0668, CVE-2010-0717)

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input
when processing user preferences. An attacker could enter malicious
content which when viewed by a user, could render in unexpected ways.

Solution :

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

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
