    Package        : mediawiki
    Debian Bug     : 773654
    
    A flaw was discovered in mediawiki, a wiki engine: thumb.php outputs
    wikitext messages as raw HTML, potentially leading to cross-site
    scripting (XSS).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.19.20+dfsg-0+deb7u3; this version additionally fixes a
    regression introduced in the previous release, DSA-3100-1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
    1:1.19.20+dfsg-2.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
