MediaWiki Sortable Table Feature HTML Injection Vulnerability

MediaWiki is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may help the attacker steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

MediaWiki versions 1.9.0 prior to 1.9.2 are vulnerable to this issue.
