DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Moodle, which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct HTTP header injection
attacks, disclose potentially sensitive information, and bypass
certain security restrictions.

1) An error related to the messaging interface using
user/action_redir can lead to disclosure of the email address of a
user.

2) The weakness is caused due to improper handling of HTTP request
headers related to calendar/set.php and can be exploited to inject
arbitrary headers.

3) The security issue is caused due to improper handling of IP
address restrictions via XMLRPC and can lead to a bypass of the
restrictions.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 1.9 through 1.9.14+.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.9.15 or later.
