Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2013 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 its input
when processing AnyWikiDraw and TWikiDraw actions. A remote attacker
with write access could exploit this to overwrite arbitrary files and
execute arbitrary code with the priviliges of the web server (user
'www-data').

It was discovered that MoinMoin also did not properly sanitize its
input when processing the AttachFile action. A remote attacker could
exploit this to overwrite files via directory traversal.

Solution :

Update the affected python-moinmoin package.

Risk factor :

High
