The remote web server contains an application that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.
According to its version number, the instance of MediaWiki running on
the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. A
flaw exists with 'sortKey' in the 'InfoAction.php' script. This allows
a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code within the server and
