Description Tomas Hoger 2007-09-12 12:01:13 EDT
Secunia published security advisory for mediawiki:


A vulnerability has been reported in MediaWiki, which can be exploited by
malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to unspecified parameters in the API pretty-printing mode is not
properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of
an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that the API interface is enabled.

The vulnerability is reported in the following versions:
* 1.11 <= 1.11.0rc1
* 1.10 <= 1.10.1
* 1.9 <= 1.9.3
* 1.8 <= 1.8.4 (if $wgEnableAPI has been switched on)

Solution: Update to version 1.11.0, 1.10.2, 1.9.4, or 1.8.5.

Versions currently in Fedora falls into "affected" range, even though there is
following note in changelog for release 1.9.3-34:

- Update to 1.9.4.

It only seems to be typo.  If there's any other reason why Fedora packages are
not affected, feel free to close this bug with appropriate comment.
