Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 / 9.04 / 9.10 : moin vulnerabilities (USN-925-1)

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 MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input
when processing Despam actions, resulting in cross-site scripting
(XSS) vulnerabilities. If a privileged wiki user were tricked into
performing the Despam action on a page with a crafted title, a remote
attacker could exploit this to execute JavaScript code.
(CVE-2010-0828)

It was discovered that the TextCha protection in MoinMoin could be
bypassed by submitting a crafted form request. This issue only
affected Ubuntu 8.10. (CVE-2010-1238).

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 : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.1
