Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-04-12 16:29:22 UTC
An issue was discovered in MediaWiki before 1.31.13 and 1.32.x through 1.35.x before 1.35.2. When using the MediaWiki API to "protect" a page, a user is currently able to protect to a higher level than they currently have permissions for.

Comment 3 Przemyslaw Roguski 2021-04-13 09:11:40 UTC

The mediawiki package was removed from OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) in version 4.3, therefore for OCP 4 has been marked as out of support scope.
