Ubuntu: MoinMoin vulnerabilities  20 February 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
A flaw was discovered in MoinMoin's debug reporting sanitizer which could lead to a cross-site scripting attack. By tricking a user into viewing a crafted MoinMoin URL, an attacker could execute arbitrary JavaScript as the current MoinMoin user, possibly exposing the user's authentication information for the domain where MoinMoin was hosted.

Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas

By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

This update fixes a similar (but much less prominent) error. At the same time, PostgreSQL is updated to version 8.1.8, which fixes a range of important bugs.

Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-417-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in the PostgreSQL server. Unfortunately this update had a regression that caused some valid queries to be aborted with a type error. This update corrects that problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.
