Description

An information leak was discovered in MediaWiki before 1.31.10 and 1.32.x through 1.34.x before 1.34.4. Handling of actor ID does not necessarily use the correct database or correct wiki.

Solution(s)

  • mediawiki-upgrade-1_31_10
  • mediawiki-upgrade-1_34_4

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.
