security update in Fedora 23 for python-wikitcms

Status: testing 2 years ago

This update contains a SECURITY fix for an issue with potentially serious consequences but very limited scope. If an administrator of a wiki you talked to using python-wikitcms were malicious, they could cause arbitrary code execution as the user running wikitcms. No-one besides a wiki administrator could do this, as it requires crafting the wiki's response to an edit request to include a malicious payload.

It also drops some now useless or unneeded code (due to changes in mediawiki and mwclient).

Automated Test Results

Test results and gating status may sometimes conflict as the gating status is retrieved periodically by Bodhi's backend server, while the test results presented here are retrieved upon page load. If your update is marked as gated while all the tests show green/passed, the next check of gating status should open the gate.
