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.
