Package        : mediawiki
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug     : none
CVE ID         : none assigned yet

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in mediawiki, a web-based wiki
engine.  The following issues have been identified:

Insufficient input sanitization in the CSS validation code allows editors
to display external images in wiki pages.  This can be a privacy concern
on public wikis as it allows attackers to gather IP addresses and other
information by linking these images to a web server under their control.

Insufficient permission checks have been found in thump.php which can lead
to disclosure of image files that are restricted to certain users
(e.g. with img_auth.php).

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.12.0-2lenny4.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.15.2-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.15.2-1.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
