Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

It was discovered that moin allowed to overwrite arbitrary files
writable by the user running moin using a crafted cookie with certain
user IDs via a directory traversal flaw. This updated package fixes
this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
