    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.
