    It was discovered that Moin, a Python clone of WikiWiki, incorrectly
    evaluates ACLs when virtual groups are involved. This may allow certain
    users to have additional permissions (privilege escalation) or lack
    expected permissions.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.9.3-1+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
