School: Conjuration [Healing]

When laying hands upon a living creature, the caster of a cure moderate wounds spell channels positive energy to heal a moderate amount of damage to the target.

Since undead creatures are powered by negative energy, if this spell is cast upon them, it causes damage rather than curing it.
