Package: mediawiki
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

	Hi all !

Several security issues have unfortunately been noticed [1] in mediawiki 
that may affect for some any version of the software.

Unfortunately too, I will most likely be overhelmed during the next few months.
As a consequence, any help is much desired on this issue. That package is SVN maintained 
so it shouldn't be difficult for any interested contributor.
