Fedora 7 : mediawiki-1.9.3-34.0.2.fc7 (2007-1442)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27715
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes the following vulnerability :
'Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the AJAX features in index.php in MediaWiki 1.6.x through 1.9.2, when $wgUseAjax is enabled, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a UTF-7 encoded value of the rs parameter, which is processed by Internet Explorer.'
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected mediawiki and / or mediawiki-debuginfo packages.
