    Package        : mediawiki
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9277
    Debian Bug     : 772764
    
    A flaw was discovered in mediawiki, a wiki engine: cross-domain-policy
    mangling allows an article editor to inject code into API consumers
    that deserialize PHP representations of the page from the API.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.19.20+dfsg-0+deb7u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
