Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

MediaWiki reports :

(T117899) SECURITY: $wgArticlePath can no longer be set to relative
paths that do not begin with a slash. This enabled trivial XSS
attacks. Configuration values such as 'http://my.wiki.com/wiki/$1' are
fine, as are '/wiki/$1'. A value such as '$1' or 'wiki/$1' is not and
will now throw an error.

(T119309) SECURITY: Use hash_compare() for edit token comparison.

(T118032) SECURITY: Don't allow cURL to interpret POST parameters
starting with '@' as file uploads.

(T115522) SECURITY: Passwords generated by User::randomPassword() can
no longer be shorter than $wgMinimalPasswordLength.

(T97897) SECURITY: Improve IP parsing and trimming. Previous behavior
could result in improper blocks being issued.

(T109724) SECURITY: Special:MyPage, Special:MyTalk,
Special:MyContributions and related pages no longer use HTTP redirects
and are now redirected by MediaWiki.
