    Updated mediawiki packages fix security vulnerabilities:
    
    Potential XSS in jQuery (CVE-2019-11358).
    
    An account can be logged out without using a token (CSRF) (CVE-2019-12466).
    
    A spammer can use Special:ChangeEmail to send out spam with no rate limiting
    or ability to block them (CVE-2019-12467).
    
    Directly POSTing to Special:ChangeEmail would allow for bypassing
    reauthentication, allowing for potential account takeover (CVE-2019-12468).
    
    Exposed suppressed username or log in Special:EditTags (CVE-2019-12469).
    
    Exposed suppressed log in RevisionDelete page (CVE-2019-12470).
    
    Loading user JavaScript from a non-existent account allows anyone to create
    the account, and XSS the users' loading that script (CVE-2019-12471).
    
    It is possible to bypass the limits on IP range blocks (`$wgBlockCIDRLimit`)
    by using the API (CVE-2019-12472).
    
    Passing invalid titles to the API could cause a DoS by querying the entire
    `watchlist` table (CVE-2019-12473).
    
    Privileged API responses that include whether a recent change has been
    patrolled may be cached publicly (CVE-2019-12474).
    
    The mediawiki package has been updated to version 1.27.6 (Mageia 6) and 1.31.2
    (Mageia 7), fixing these issues and other bugs.  See the release announcements
    for more details.
