vectors for injecting JavaScript in CSS that bypassed MediaWiki's
blacklist (CVE-2013-4567, CVE-2013-4568).

Internal review while debugging a site issue discovered that MediaWiki
and the CentralNotice extension were incorrectly setting cache headers
when a user was autocreated, causing the user's session cookies to be
cached, and returned to other users (CVE-2013-4572).
