USN-977-1: MoinMoin vulnerabilities

25 August 2010

Releases

Packages

Details

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input,
resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. With cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing server
output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could exploit
this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data, within the same
domain.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
