Fedora 15 : mediawiki-1.16.4-58.fc15 (2011-5848)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53567

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update brings mediawiki to version 1.16.4, which is the latest stable release at the moment, but currently also the only supported and recommended release by the mediawiki developer community.

Further changes :

- some simple wiki management functionality was added :

- mw-createinstance <path> creates a wiki instance under <path>, which is autoupgraded upon package updates.

- any wiki path entered in /etc/mediawiki/instances will be autoupgraded upon package updates.

- /var/www/wiki is entered into this list automatically, but you can remove it if you don't want this instance to be autoupgraded.

- opensearch and suggestions are enabled by default

- several bug fixes (see changelog).

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.

Solution

Update the affected mediawiki package.
