It was discovered that moin allowed overwrite of arbitrary file writable by user
running moin using crafted cookie with certain user IDs via directory traversal
Fix in upstream HG:
Sample exploit on milw0rm:
Issue was reported for 1.5.x, but latest 1.6.1 in rawhide seems to be affected too.
moin-1.5.8-3.fc7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 7
moin-1.5.8-3.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
I've rebuilt patched packages for F-7, F-8, EL-4 and EL-5, and requested the
push to testing updates for the Fedora packages. I can't seem to find any
mention of 1.6.x being affected, nor can I see any fix having gone into the
upstream repository, and haven't yet looked at the code.
If there is more information as to 1.6.x's state, please let me know.
Matthias, I just look at the patch and it seems to apply to 1.6.x as well.
Maybe there are other differences between 1.5.x and 1.6.x that make this patch
irrelevant for 1.6.x, but upstream will likely know better as they have not
applied it there (yet). If 1.6.x is not affected, feel free to close-notabug
tracking bugs filed against devel.
moin-1.5.8-3.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
