    Jamie Strandboge discovered that moin, a python clone of WikiWiki, does
    not sufficiently sanitize the page name in "Despam" action, allowing remote
    attackers to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
    
    In addition, this update fixes a minor issue in the "textcha" protection, it
    could be trivially bypassed by blanking the "textcha-question" and "textcha-answer"
    form fields.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.1-3+lenny4.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, these problems
    will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your moin package.

    Debian (stable)
    - ---------------
    
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
