The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the e59fed96-60da-11ee-9102-000c29de725b advisory.

  • Mediawiki v1.40.0 does not validate namespaces used in XML files. Therefore, if the instance administrator allows XML file uploads, a remote attacker with a low-privileged user account can use this exploit to become an administrator by sending a malicious link to the instance administrator. (CVE-2023-3550)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
