Details follow:

It was discovered that several wiki actions and preference settings in
MoinMoin were not protected from cross-site request forgery (CSRF). If an
authenticated user were tricked into visiting a malicious website while
logged into MoinMoin, a remote attacker could change the user's
configuration or wiki content. (CVE-2010-0668, CVE-2010-0717)

It was discovered that MoinMoin did not properly sanitize its input when
processing user preferences. An attacker could enter malicious content
which when viewed by a user, could render in unexpected ways.
