Technical Details:
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 Linux Distribution Package.

The remote host is missing an update to moin announced via advisory DSA 1514-1.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
