MediaWiki 1.24.x < 1.27.2 Wiki Visitor IP Leakage


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of MediaWiki hosted on the remote web server is prior to 1.23.16, 1.24.x prior to 1.27.2 or 1.28.x prior to 1.28.1 . It is, therefore, affected by a flaw which may allow remote attackers to discover the IP addresses of Wiki Visitors via a style tag within a DIV element with a attacker-controlled URL in the title attribute.

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to MediaWiki version 1.27.2 or later.
