Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 / 9.04 / 9.10 : moin vulnerabilities (USN-911-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2016 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.
(CVE-2010-0669).

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 :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.5
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
