Fedora 19 : mediawiki-1.20.4-1.fc19 (2013-5874)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- An internal review discovered that specially crafted Lua
function names could lead to XSS.
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46084

- Daniel Franke reported that during SVG parsing,
MediaWiki failed to prevent XML external entity (XXE)
processing. This could lead to local file disclosure, or
potentially remote command execution in environments
that have enabled expect:// handling.

- Internal review also discovered that Special:Import, and
Extension:RSS failed to prevent XML external entity
(XXE) processing.

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.
