FreeBSD : moinmoin -- wrong processing of group membership (4f99e2ef-f725-11e1-8bd8-0022156e8794)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61781


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


MoinMoin developers report :

If you have group NAMES containing 'All' or 'Known' or 'Trusted', they behaved wrong until now (they erroneously included All/Known/Trusted users even if you did not list them as members), but will start working correctly with this changeset.

E.g. AllFriendsGroup :

- JoeDoe

AllFriendsGroup will now (correctly) include only JoeDoe. It (erroneously) contained all users (including JoeDoe) before.

E.g. MyTrustedFriendsGroup :

- JoeDoe

MyTrustedFriendsGroup will now (correctly) include only JoeDoe. It (erroneously) contained all trusted users and JoeDoe before.


Update the affected package.
