FreeBSD : mediawiki -- multiple vulnerabilities (79ea6066-b40e-11ec-8b93-080027b24e86)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 159495



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


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the 79ea6066-b40e-11ec-8b93-080027b24e86 advisory.

- An XSS issue was discovered in MediaWiki before 1.35.6, 1.36.x before 1.36.4, and 1.37.x before 1.37.2.
The widthheight, widthheightpage, and nbytes properties of messages are not escaped when used in galleries or Special:RevisionDelete. (CVE-2022-28202)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
