Package        : moin
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2010-0828
Debian Bugs    : 575995


Jamie Strandboge discovered that moin, a python clone of WikiWiki, does
not sufficiently sanitize the page name in "Despam" action, allowing remote
attackers to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

In addition, this update fixes a minor issue in the "textcha" protection, it
could be trivially bypassed by blanking the "textcha-question" and "textcha-answer"
form fields.


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7.1-3+lenny4.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, these problems
will be fixed soon.

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.


Debian (stable)

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
