Description Vincent Danen 2014-01-28 22:25:55 UTC
It was reported [1] that MediaWiki suffers from a remote code execution vulnerability if you have enabled file upload support for DjVu (natively handled) or PDF files (in combination with the PdfHandler extension).  Neither file type is enabled by default in MediaWiki installations.

MediaWiki versions 1.22.2, 1.21.5, and 1.19.11 were released to correct this flaw.
