Package        : mediawiki
Vulnerability  : CSRF
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-1150

It was discovered that mediawiki, a website engine for collaborative
work, is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Request Forgery login attack, which
could be used to conduct phishing or similar attacks to users via
affected mediawiki installations.

Note that the fix used breaks the login API and may require clients using it to 
be updated.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.12.0-2lenny5.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid),
this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.15.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.

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.
