Package        : moin

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.

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.
