Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Bring mediawiki up to date to fix multiple bugs, security holes, and
bring new features.

The package should automatically attempt to upgrade your wiki, but
please make sure to perform backups before updating. Special care may
be required for MySQL based wikis. See bug 845818.

Read the main mediawiki website for Release Notes for 1.17, 1.18, and
1.19.

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.
