SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in mediawiki :
Full path disclosure in MediaWiki before 1.20.7, when an invalid language is specified in ResourceLoader (CVE-2013-4301).
Several API modules in MediaWiki before 1.20.7 allowed anti-CSRF tokens to be accessed via JSONP (CVE-2013-4302).
An issue with the MediaWiki API in MediaWiki before 1.20.7 where an invalid property name could be used for XSS with older versions of Internet Explorer (CVE-2013-4303).
Several unspecified security issues were fixed with the 1.20.6 version. This replaces the MediaWiki 1.16.5 version, which has been EOL upstream for quite some time now, that was shipped with MBS 1.
MediaWiki removed the Math extension for the 1.18 release, but it is now available separately. It has been packaged in the mediawiki-math package.
The mediawiki-graphviz and mediawiki-ldapauthentication packages have also been updated to work with the new MediaWiki packages.
The updated packages provides a solution to these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
