Summary

The package mediawiki before version 1.28.1-1 is vulnerable to multiple
issues including arbitrary code execution, cross-site scripting,
information disclosure, cross-site request forgery, insufficient
validation, open redirect and access restriction bypass.

Resolution

Upgrade to 1.28.1-1.

pacman -Syu “mediawiki>=1.28.1-1”

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 1.28.1.

Workaround

None.

Description

  • CVE-2017-0361 (information disclosure)

MediaWiki before 1.28.1 may leak passwords in plaintext. API parameters
may now be marked as “sensitive” to keep their values out of the logs.

  • CVE-2017-0362 (cross-site request forgery)

MediaWiki before 1.18.1 did not require a CSRF token for the “Mark all
pages visited” action on the watchlist.

  • CVE-2017-0363 (open redirect)

The Special:UserLogin page in MediaWiki < 1.28.1 has an open redirect
issue.

  • CVE-2017-0364 (open redirect)

The Special:Search page in MediaWiki < 1.28.1 has an open redirect
issue.

  • CVE-2017-0365 (cross-site scripting)

SearchHighlighter::removeWiki() uses a regex to remove html from
snippets. The regex - /</?[^>]+>/ assumes that html is well-formed. As
a result when using SearchHighlighter::highlightText() as the
highlighting method, this can result in an XSS when
$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting is true.

  • CVE-2017-0366 (cross-site scripting)

MediaWiki < 1.28.1 did not properly filter the DTD declaration when a
SVG file was uploaded, leading to a persistent XSS.

  • CVE-2017-0367 (arbitrary code execution)

MediaWiki before 1.28.1 uses the default system temporary directory for
the LocalisationCache directory, allowing a local attacker to execute
arbitrary code as the web user by crafting a cache file whose content
will be passe to unserialize().

  • CVE-2017-0368 (cross-site scripting)

MediaWiki < 1.28.1 did not properly mark system messages as raw HTML,
hence not properly escaping it.

  • CVE-2017-0369 (access restriction bypass)

In MediaWiki < 1.28.1, a normal sysop that doesn’t have the necessary
rights to override a page protection can still recreate it by restoring
a former revision of that page.

  • CVE-2017-0370 (insufficient validation)

The spam blacklist in MediaWiki before 1.28.1 could be bypassed by
encoding URLs inside a file inclusion syntax’s link parameter.

  • CVE-2017-0372 (cross-site scripting)

The SyntaxHighlight extension in MediaWiki before 1.28.1 does not
properly validate the ‘start’ parameter before passing it to Pygments.

Impact

A remote attacker might be able to access sensitive information, trick
users into visiting a malicious website, execute arbitrary JavaScript
on the visitor’s browser, trick users into performing unwanted actions
and bypass access restrictions. A local attacker might be able to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the webserver.
