USN-925-1: MoinMoin vulnerabilities

8 April 2010

MoinMoin vulnerabilities




It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input when
processing Despam actions, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities. If a privileged wiki user were tricked into performing
the Despam action on a page with a crafted title, a remote attacker could
exploit this to execute JavaScript code. (CVE-2010-0828)

It was discovered that the TextCha protection in MoinMoin could be bypassed
by submitting a crafted form request. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.10.

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.
