This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated mediawiki packages fix security vulnerabilies :

In MediaWiki before 1.23.7, a missing CSRF check could allow reflected
XSS on wikis that allow raw HTML (CVE-2014-9276).

MediaWiki's mangling, in MediaWiki before 1.23.7, could allow an
article editor to inject code into API consumers that blindly
unserialize PHP representations of the page from the API
(CVE-2014-9277).

This update provides MediaWiki 1.23.7, which fixes these security
issues and other bugs.
