    Package        : mediawiki
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-7295
    
    It was reported that MediaWiki, a website engine for collaborative work,
    allowed to load user-created CSS on pages where user-created JavaScript
    is not allowed. A wiki user could be tricked into performing actions by
    manipulating the interface from CSS, or JavaScript code being executed
    from CSS, on security-wise sensitive pages like Special:Preferences and
    Special:UserLogin. This update removes the separation of CSS and
    JavaScript module allowance.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.19.20+dfsg-0+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.19.20+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
