USN-911-1: MoinMoin vulnerabilities

11 March 2010

MoinMoin vulnerabilities




It was discovered that several wiki actions and preference settings in
MoinMoin were not protected from cross-site request forgery (CSRF). If an
authenticated user were tricked into visiting a malicious website while
logged into MoinMoin, a remote attacker could change the user's
configuration or wiki content. (CVE-2010-0668, CVE-2010-0717)

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input when
processing user preferences. An attacker could enter malicious content
which when viewed by a user, could render in unexpected ways.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
