A security issue has been reported in MoinMoin, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions.
The security issue is caused due to an incorrect evaluation of ACL rules when applied to a group that contains a virtual group (e.g. "All", "Known", or "Trusted"). This can be exploited to have incorrect permissions assigned and access restricted content.
Successful exploitation requires that virtual group members exist within another group.
The security issue is reported in versions 1.9.4 and prior.
Solution: Update to version 1.9.5.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
