Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in moin, a python clone of
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:


Multiple security issues in MoinMoin related to configurations that have
a non-empty superuser list, the xmlrpc action enabled, the SyncPages
action enabled, or OpenID configured.


MoinMoin does not properly sanitize user profiles.


The default configuration of cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded in MoinMoin
does not prevent unsafe package actions.

In addition, this update fixes an error when processing hierarchical ACLs,
which can be exploited to access restricted sub-pages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7.1-3+lenny3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.2-1, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze)

We recommend that you upgrade your moin 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.
