Debian DSA-4301-1 : mediawiki - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117645


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Multiple security vulnerabilities have been discovered in MediaWiki, a website engine for collaborative work, which result in incorrectly configured rate limits, information disclosure in Special:Redirect/logid and bypass of an account lock.


Upgrade the mediawiki packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.27.5-1~deb9u1.
