|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: MoinMoin: Privilege escalation (GLSA 200805-09)
Date: May 11, 2008
A vulnerability in MoinMoin may allow a remote attacker to elevate his privileges.
MoinMoin is an advanced and extensible Wiki Engine.
Vulnerable: < 1.6.3
Unaffected: >= 1.6.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
It has been reported that the user form processing in the file userform.py does not properly manage users when using Access Control Lists or a non-empty superusers list.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain superuser privileges on the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MoinMoin users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/moinmoin-1.6.3"
