    Multiple security issues were discovered in MediaWiki, a website engine
    for collaborative work: SpecialUserRights could leak whether a user
    existed or not, multiple code paths lacked HTML sanitisation allowing
    for cross-site scripting and TOTP validation applied insufficient rate
    limiting against brute force attempts.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.31.10-1~deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of mediawiki please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
