Title: MediaWiki: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200502-33)
Date: February 28, 2005
Bug(s): #80729, #82954
MediaWiki is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, data manipulation and security bypass attacks.
MediaWiki is a collaborative editing software, used by big projects like Wikipedia.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.11
Unaffected: >= 1.3.11
Architectures: All supported architectures
A security audit of the MediaWiki project discovered that MediaWiki is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks, and that the image deletion code does not sufficiently sanitize input parameters.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MediaWiki users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mediawiki-1.3.11"
Secunia Advisory SA14125
