Fedora 25 : mediawiki (2017-2643ef1cad)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 100184

Language:

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Due to a mistake in packaging, the releases 1.27.2 and 1.28.1 did not contain the fix for SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi. This new release does contain that fix.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected mediawiki package.
