MoinMoin: Group ACL bypass
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-25
(MoinMoin: Group ACL bypass)
MoinMoin contains two unspecified bugs, one permiting anonymous users
elevated access when not using ACLs, and the other in the ACL handling in
Restrictions on anonymous users were not properly enforced. This could lead
to unauthorized users gaining administrative access to functions such as
"revert" and "delete". Sites are vulnerable whether or
not they are using ACLs.
There is no known workaround.
All users should upgrade to the latest available version of MoinMoin, as
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=net-ww/moinmoin-1.2.3"
