Package        : moin
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-0260 CVE-2009-0312
Debian Bug     : 513158


It was discovered that the AttachFile action in moin, a python clone of
WikiWiki, is prone to cross-site scripting attacks (CVE-2009-0260).
Another cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered in the
antispam feature (CVE-2009-0312).


For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5.3-1.2etch2.

For the testing (lenny) distribution these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7.1-3+lenny1.

For the unstable (sid) distribution these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.1-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your moin packages.

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.
