    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in MoinMoin, a
    Python clone of WikiWiki. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-2423
    
        A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
        attachment handling.
    
    CVE-2007-2637
    
        Access control lists for calendars and includes were
        insufficiently enforced, which could lead to information
        disclosure.
    
    CVE-2008-0780
    
        A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
        the login code.
    
    CVE-2008-0781
    
        A cross-site-scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
        attachment handling.
    
    CVE-2008-0782
    
        A directory traversal vulnerability in cookie handling could
        lead to local denial of service by overwriting files.
    
    CVE-2008-1098
    
        Cross-site-scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
        the GUI editor formatter and the code to delete pages.
    
    CVE-2008-1099
    
        The macro code validates access control lists insufficiently,
        which could lead to information disclosure.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5.3-1.2etch1. This update also includes a bugfix wrt the
    encoding of password reminder mails, which doesn't have security
    implications.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) will not be updated due to
    the many changes and support for Sarge ending end of this month
    anyway. You're advised to upgrade to the stable distribution if
    you run moinmoin.
    
    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 4.0 (stable)
    - -------------------
    
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

      its next update.
