More information:

Multiple security issues were discovered in MediaWiki, a website engine for collaborative work: SpecialUserRights could leak whether a user existed or not, multiple code paths lacked HTML sanitisation allowing for cross-site scripting and TOTP validation applied insufficient rate limiting against brute force attempts.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.31.10-1~deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mediawiki packages.
