Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-11-29 13:13:06 UTC
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way MediaWiki, the wiki engine, processed 'curid' and 'oldid' request paramaters. A remote attacker could use this flaw to enumerate page titles on private MediaWiki installations.

Upstream bug report:
[1] https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32276

An information disclosure flaw was found in the way MediaWiki, the wiki engine, performed action=ajax requests dispatching to relevant internal functions. These requests were dispatched without any read permissions checks being done. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain data on private MediaWiki installations.
