Description

According to its version number, the instance of MediaWiki running on the remote host is affected by multiple security vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw exists because the application fails to validate input passed via uploaded SVG files before returning it to the user. This allows a remote attacker to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2013-2031)

  • A flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass the password change blocking mechanism. (CVE-2013-2032)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
