Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.04 / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : moin vulnerabilities (USN-1604-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize certain
input, resulting in a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. With
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into
viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote
attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal
confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2011-1058)

It was discovered that MoinMoin incorrectly handled group names that
contain virtual group names such as 'All', 'Known' or 'Trusted'. This
could result in a remote user having incorrect permissions.
(CVE-2012-4404).

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 python-moinmoin package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.2
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
