[GLSA-200408-25] MoinMoin: Group ACL bypass

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
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
the PageEditor.

Impact

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.

Workaround

There is no known workaround.
