FreeBSD : moinmoin -- ACL group bypass (1ecf4ca1-f7ad-11d8-96c9-00061bc2ad93)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 38135


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


The moinmoin package contains two bugs with ACLs and anonymous users.
Both bugs may permit anonymous users to gain access to administrative functions; for example the delete function.

There is no known workaround, the vulnerability exists regardless if a site is using ACLs or not.


Update the affected package.
