Fedora 12 : mediawiki-1.15.3-53.fc12 (2010-6335)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This is a security and bugfix release of MediaWiki 1.15.3. Three
security issues are fixed in this update: A CSS validation issue was
discovered which allows editors to display external images in wiki
pages. A data leakage vulnerability was discovered in thumb.php which
affects wikis which restrict access to private files using
img_auth.php, or some similar scheme. MediaWiki was found to be
vulnerable to login CSRF. The upstrea authors recommend that all
public wikis should be upgraded if possible. The fix includes a
breaking change to the API login action. Any clients using it will
need to be updated.

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.
