Nitin Venkatesh discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in moin, a Python clone of WikiWiki. A remote attacker can conduct cross-site scripting attacks via the GUI editor's link dialogue. This only affects installations which have set up fckeditor (not enabled by default).

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.9.8-1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your moin packages.
