MoinMoin Despam.py cross-site scripting
|moinmoin-despam-xss (57435)||Medium Risk|
MoinMoin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by Despam.py. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the page name to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
