Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.19.20+dfsg-0+deb7u3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Today I started getting delivery failures from a server about mails sent by
the www-data user. I've added a small script to find out what is sending
them. It returned this:

/var/lib/mediawiki/images/shwso.php(7) : eval()'d code(1) : eval()'d code(1)
/: eval()'d code(10) : eval()'d code(2) : regexp code(1) : eval()'d
/code(501) : eval()'d code:77

I'm not sure what to make of it, and I must say I know very little about
mediawiki, but it looks a little like there is some sort of vulnerablity
being exploited (at least to my untrained eyes..)
