Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated mediawiki packages fix security vulnerabilities :

In MediaWiki before 1.23.8, thumb.php outputs wikitext message as raw
HTML, which could lead to cross-site scripting. Permission to edit
MediaWiki namespace is required to exploit this.

In MediaWiki before 1.23.8, a malicious site can bypass CORS
restrictions in in API calls if it only included an allowed domain as
part of its name.
