The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Bring mediawiki up to date to fix multiple bugs, security holes, and bring new features.

The package should automatically attempt to upgrade your wiki, but please make sure to perform backups before updating. Special care may be required for MySQL based wikis. See bug 845818.

Read the main mediawiki website for Release Notes for 1.17, 1.18, and 1.19.

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.
