The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
This update fixes two vulnerabilities in mediawiki CVE-2010-1647
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in MediaWiki 1.15 before
1.15.4 and 1.16 before 1.16 beta 3 allows remote attackers to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
strings that are processed as script by Internet Explorer.
CVE-2010-1648 Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the
login interface in MediaWiki 1.15 before 1.15.4 and 1.16 before 1.16
beta 3 allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of users
for requests that (1) create accounts or (2) reset passwords, related
to the Special:Userlogin form. There is also a minor bug fixed which
prevented the use of mediawiki w/o php.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
