Description

MediaWiki before 1.19.18, 1.20.x through 1.22.x before 1.22.9, and 1.23.x before 1.23.2 does not enforce an IFRAME protection mechanism for transcluded pages, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct clickjacking attacks via a crafted web site.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-www-apps-mediawiki

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
