    Package        : mediawiki
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-5241 CVE-2014-5243
    Debian Bug     : 752622 758510
    
    It was discovered that MediaWiki, a website engine for collaborative
    work, is vulnerable to JSONP injection in Flash (CVE-2014-5241) and
    clickjacking between OutputPage and ParserOutput (CVE-2014-5243). The
    vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MediaWiki to the new upstream
    version 1.19.18, which includes additional changes.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.19.18+dfsg-0+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
