Various cross site scripting issues in the Moodle codebase
(CVE-2008-3326, CVE-2008-3325, CVE-2007-3555, CVE-2008-5432,
MSA-08-0021, MDL-8849, MDL-12793, MDL-11414, MDL-14806,
MDL-10276).

Various cross site request forgery issues in the Moodle codebase
(CVE-2008-3325, MSA-08-0023).

Privilege escalation bugs in the Moodle codebase (MSA-08-0001, MDL-7755).

SQL injection issue in the hotpot module (MSA-08-0010).

An embedded copy of Smarty had several vulnerabilities
(CVE-2008-4811, CVE-2008-4810).
An embedded copy of Snoopy was vulnerable to cross site scripting
(CVE-2008-4796).
An embedded copy of Kses was vulnerable to cross site scripting

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
