More information:

Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities were discovered in moin, a Python clone of WikiWiki. A remote attacker can conduct cross-site scripting attacks via the GUI editor's attachment dialogue (CVE-2016-7146), the AttachFile view (CVE-2016-7148) and the GUI editor's link dialogue (CVE-2016-9119).

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.8-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your moin packages.
