<revised>April 04, 2006: 01</revised>
<package name="www-apps/mediawiki" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">1.4.15</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">1.4.15</vulnerable>
MediaWiki is a collaborative editing software, used by big
projects like Wikipedia.
MediaWiki fails to decode certain encoded URLs correctly.
<impact type="low">
By supplying specially crafted links, a remote attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious HTML or JavaScript code
that will be executed in a user's browser session in the context of the
vulnerable site.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MediaWiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/mediawiki-1.4.15&quot;</code>
