    It was discovered that the AttachFile action in moin, a python clone of
    WikiWiki, is prone to cross-site scripting attacks when renaming
    attachements or performing other sub-actions.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.7.1-3+lenny2.
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch) is not vulnerable.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) distribution and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your moin packages.
