Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Moodle, a
course management system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2010-1613
	Moodle does not enable the "Regenerate session id during
	login" setting by default, which makes it easier for remote
	attackers to conduct session fixation attacks.

CVE-2010-1614
	Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow
	remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via
	vectors related to (1) the Login-As feature or (2) when the
	global search feature is enabled, unspecified global search
	forms in the Global Search Engine.

CVE-2010-1615
	Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers
	to execute arbitrary SQL commands via vectors related to (1)
	the add_to_log function in mod/wiki/view.php in the wiki
	module, or (2) "data validation in some forms elements"
	related to lib/form/selectgroups.php.

CVE-2010-1616
	Moodle can create new roles when restoring a course, which
	allows teachers to create new accounts even if they do not
	have the moodle/user:create capability.

CVE-2010-1617
	user/view.php does not properly check a role, which allows
	remote authenticated users to obtain the full names of other
	users via the course profile page.

CVE-2010-1618
	A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the phpCAS
	client library allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
	script or HTML via a crafted URL, which is not properly
	handled in an error message.

CVE-2010-1619
	A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the
	fix_non_standard_entities function in the KSES HTML text
	cleaning library (weblib.php) allows remote attackers to
	inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted HTML entities.

CVE-2010-2228
	A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the MNET
	access-control interface allows remote attackers to inject
	arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors involving extended
	characters in a username.

CVE-2010-2229
	Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in
	blog/index.php allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
	script or HTML via unspecified parameters.

CVE-2010-2230
	The KSES text cleaning filter in lib/weblib.php does
	not properly handle vbscript URIs, which allows remote
	authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS)
	attacks via HTML input.

CVE-2010-2231
	A Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in
	report/overview/report.php in the quiz module allows remote
	attackers to hijack the authentication of arbitrary users for
	requests that delete quiz attempts via the attemptid
	parameter.

This security update switches to a new upstream version and requires
database updates.  After installing the fixed package, you must visit
<http://localhost/moodle/admin/> and follow the update instructions.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.13-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.9.dfsg2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your moodle package.
