Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71510


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated mediawiki packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Kevin Israel (Wikipedia user PleaseStand) identified and reported two vectors for injecting JavaScript in CSS that bypassed MediaWiki's blacklist (CVE-2013-4567, CVE-2013-4568).

Internal review while debugging a site issue discovered that MediaWiki and the CentralNotice extension were incorrectly setting cache headers when a user was autocreated, causing the user's session cookies to be cached, and returned to other users (CVE-2013-4572).


Update the affected packages.
