A vulnerability in MoinMoin may allow a remote attacker to elevate his privileges.
|Package||www-apps/moinmoin on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.6.3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.6.3|
MoinMoin is an advanced and extensible Wiki Engine.
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"
