Medium Nessus Plugin ID 39865


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update upgrades mediawiki code to 1.15.1 and fixes some path references. Upstream comments: This is a security and bugfix release of MediaWiki 1.15.1 and 1.14.1. A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was discovered. Only versions 1.14.0, 1.15.0 and release candidates for those releases are affected.

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.


Update the affected mediawiki package.
