CVE entries at MITRE furher clarify :
Multiple unrestricted file upload vulnerabilities in the (1) twikidraw (action/twikidraw.py) and (2) anywikidraw (action/anywikidraw.py) actions in MoinMoin before 1.9.6 allow remote authenticated users with write permissions to execute arbitrary code by uploading a file with an executable extension, then accessing it via a direct request to the file in an unspecified directory, as exploited in the wild in July 2012.
Directory traversal vulnerability in the _do_attachment_move function in the AttachFile action (action/AttachFile.py) in MoinMoin 1.9.3 through 1.9.5 allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in a file name.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the rsslink function in theme/__init__.py in MoinMoin 1.9.5 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the page name in a rss link.
