The remote web server hosts a version of MediaWiki vulnerable to a
cross-site scripting attack.
There is a cross-site scripting vulnerability in this installation of
MediaWiki that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary script code
in the browser of an unsuspecting user. Such script code could steal
authentication credentials and be used to launch other attacks.
This version of MediaWiki also contains a local file inclusion
vulnerability that is exploitable when running Microsoft Windows, but
