 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:235

 Package : mediawiki
 Date    : September 16, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 Full path disclosure in MediaWiki before 1.20.7, when an invalid
 language is specified in ResourceLoader (CVE-2013-4301).
 Several API modules in MediaWiki before 1.20.7 allowed anti-CSRF
 tokens to be accessed via JSONP (CVE-2013-4302).
 An issue with the MediaWiki API in MediaWiki before 1.20.7 where an
 invalid property name could be used for XSS with older versions of
 Internet Explorer (CVE-2013-4303).
 Several unspecified security issues were fixed with the 1.20.6
 version. This replaces the MediaWiki 1.16.5 version, which has been
 EOL upstream for quite some time now, that was shipped with MBS 1.
 MediaWiki removed the Math extension for the 1.18 release, but it is
 now available separately. It has been packaged in the mediawiki-math
 The mediawiki-graphviz and mediawiki-ldapauthentication packages have
 also been updated to work with the new MediaWiki packages.
 The updated packages provides a solution to these issues.
