SA39188

VERIFY ADVISORY:

DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in MoinMoin, which can be exploited
by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.

Input passed via the page name is not properly sanitised before being
returned to the user in Despam.py. This can be exploited to insert
arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser
session in context of an affected site when the Despam functionality
is used on a page with a specially crafted page name.

The vulnerability is reported in version 1.9.2 and 1.8.7.

SOLUTION:
Fixed in the source code repository.
