Changelog for 1.6.1 lists this:

They're not more specific and there seems to be no cve yet, anyway it's a security issue.
Comment 1 Bernd Marienfeldt 2008-02-06 13:41:23 UTC shows
" * Fix XSS issue in login action."
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-06 14:01:25 UTC
1.6.1 in webapps overlay (using distutils as it should in the first place now) in case someone needs it urgently. :)
Comment 3 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-06 22:34:43 UTC
web-apps, please bump 1.6.1 into the tree.

This one is ready for GLSA vote. I vote NO.
Comment 12 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-25 22:14:40 UTC
I would raise the severity level on this bug, for CVE-2008-0782:
  Directory traversal vulnerability in MoinMoin 1.5.8 and earlier allows
  remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via ".." sequences in the
  MOIN_ID user ID in a cookie for a userform action. NOTE: this issue can
  be leveraged for PHP code execution via the quicklinks parameter.

Anyway, YES.
Comment 13 Gunnar Wrobel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-26 07:14:54 UTC
Removed vulnerable version. webapps done.
Comment 14 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-26 08:58:20 UTC
voting NO too, and closing.
Comment 15 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-26 09:02:35 UTC
Actually I missed rbu's comment. reverting my vote to YES, and request filed.
Comment 16 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-26 10:07:21 UTC
Raising severity to C1 ie remote code execution with non standard config. Is that correct?

Comment 18 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-08 17:14:06 UTC
We should research this first, but I asusme this is fixes in the most recent update, too. Hanno, can you help here?

CVE-2008-1098 (
  Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in MoinMoin 1.5.8 and
  earlier allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via (1)
  certain input processed by formatter/ (aka the gui editor
  formatter); (2) a page name, which triggers an injection in
  when the page is successfully deleted by a victim in a DeletePage action; or
  (3) the destination page name for a RenamePage action, which triggers an
  injection in when a victim's rename attempt fails because of a
  duplicate name.  NOTE: the AttachFile XSS issue is already covered by
  CVE-2008-0781, and the login XSS issue is already covered by CVE-2008-0780.

CVE-2008-1099 (
  _macro_Getval in in MoinMoin 1.5.8 and earlier does not properly
  enforce ACLs, which allows remote attackers to read protected pages.
