Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
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.
Update the affected python-moinmoin package.
