Description Andrej Nemec 2016-11-14 08:59:40 UTC
MoinMoin 1.9.8 allows remote attackers to conduct "JavaScript
injection" attacks by using the "page creation" approach, related to a
"Cross Site Scripting (XSS)" issue affecting the action=AttachFile (via
page name) component.

XSS 1: Persistent XSS (CVE-2016-7148)
A page name is echoed in the attach file page without encoding, leading to persistent XSS. 

XSS 2: Persistent XSS (CVE-2016-7146)
Description: The GUI editor is vulnerable to XSS via a specifically crafted URL, as it echoes part of the URL without encoding in two different places. The issue can be exploited reflected or persistent.
