Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

A MediaWiki security announcement reports :

MediaWiki was found to be vulnerable to login CSRF. An attacker who
controls a user account on the target wiki can force the victim to log
in as the attacker, via a script on an external website.

If the wiki is configured to allow user scripts, say with
'$wgAllowUserJs = true' in LocalSettings.php, then the attacker can
proceed to mount a phishing-style attack against the victim to obtain
their password.
