Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-12-31 04:14:09 UTC
A  remote code execution vulnerability was found in MoinMoin wiki, versions 1.9.x up to (and including) 1.9.5. The method save in class
AnyWikiDraw (action/anywikidraw.py) and class TWikiDraw (action/twikidraw.py) do not filter user supplied input correctly, which leads to a path traversal vulnerability, which can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with moin's privileges. An exploit was seen in the wild.
