Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Moodle, an online
course management system. The following issues are addressed in this
update, ranging from cross site scripting to remote code execution.

Various cross site scripting issues in the Moodle codebase
(CVE-2008-3326, CVE-2008-3325, CVE-2007-3555, CVE-2008-5432,
MSA-08-0021, MDL-8849, MDL-12793, MDL-11414, MDL-14806,
MDL-10276).

Various cross site request forgery issues in the Moodle codebase
(CVE-2008-3325, MSA-08-0023).

Privilege escalation bugs in the Moodle codebase (MSA-08-0001, MDL-7755).

SQL injection issue in the hotpot module (MSA-08-0010).

An embedded copy of Smarty had several vulnerabilities
(CVE-2008-4811, CVE-2008-4810).
An embedded copy of Snoopy was vulnerable to cross site scripting
(CVE-2008-4796).
An embedded copy of Kses was vulnerable to cross site scripting
(CVE-2008-1502).

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.3-2+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.2.dfsg-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your moodle (1.6.3-2+etch1) package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
