It would be best to give the context in which are you looking.

Xenial and Yakkety have 1.9.8-1ubuntu1, so seem to be fine.

Precise and Trusty do not have said update, so I guess you mean those?
Precise has received security updates since release, for CVEs, but is
on quite an older base.

Do you have a reference to the MoinMoin-documented issues? The page I
found in cursory searching: just says
1.9.8 "Fixes issues found in 1.9.7." I'm guessing that there is no
corresponding CVE-like issue filed, so the -security team may not be
aware of a need to fix any issues (not 100% on that). Have you filed a
bug with Ubuntu for the issues that required you to use 1.9.8?
