Synopsis
========

MoinMoin contains a bug allowing a user to bypass group ACLs (Access
Control Lists).

Background
==========

MoinMoin is a Python clone of WikiWiki, based on PikiPiki.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-www/moinmoin <= 1.2.1 >= 1.2.2

Description
===========

MoinMoin contains a bug in the code handling administrative group ACLs.
A user created with the same name as an administrative group gains the
privileges of the administrative group.

Impact
======

If an administrative group called AdminGroup existed an attacker could
create a user called AdminGroup and gain the privileges of the group
AdminGroup. This could lead to unauthorized users gaining
administrative access.

Workaround
==========

For every administrative group with special privileges create a user
with the same name as the group.

Resolution
==========

All users should upgrade to the latest available version of MoinMoin,
as follows:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=net-ww/moinmoin-1.2.2"
# emerge ">=net-ww/moinmoin-1.2.2"
