Package        : moin
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-1482
Debian Bug     : 526594


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.


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
