    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in moin, a python clone of
    WikiWiki.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2010-0668
    
    Multiple security issues in MoinMoin related to configurations that have
    a non-empty superuser list, the xmlrpc action enabled, the SyncPages
    action enabled, or OpenID configured.
    
    
    CVE-2010-0669
    
    MoinMoin does not properly sanitize user profiles.
    
    
    CVE-2010-0717
    
    The default configuration of cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded in MoinMoin
    does not prevent unsafe package actions.
    
    
    In addition, this update fixes an error when processing hierarchical ACLs,
    which can be exploited to access restricted sub-pages.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.1-3+lenny3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.2-1, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze)
    shortly.
    
    
    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.
    
    Source archives:

      its next update.
