The MediaWiki development team reports:

A possible HTML/XSS injection vector in the API pretty-printing mode has been found and fixed. The vulnerability may be worked around in an unfixed version by simply disabling the API interface if it is not in use, by adding this to LocalSettings.php: $wgEnableAPI = false; (This is the default setting in 1.8.x.)
