Isn't mediawiki part of the LibreOffice suite?
AFAIK, no.
Do you a search in YaST;s file manager for 'mediawiki' and you will find
that it is part of LibreOffice. There are 2 entries for it - one for LO
and another for some interface for MediaWiki for web service.
Yes, and you can see also mediawiki related docbook xml stylesheets. But
that is not "mediawiki" itself, just things to write for it. You may
even have a library (libmediawiki1).


MediaWiki is what runs the wikipedia, or the openSUSE wiki site, for
instance.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki

«MediaWiki is a free and open-source wiki app, used to power wiki
websites such as Wikipedia, Wiktionary and Commons, developed by the
Wikimedia Foundation and others. It also runs thousands of other
websites.[1] It is written in the PHP programming language and uses a
backend database.»

OK, so one can now assume that what is currently installed in oS for LO is immune and therefore safe from the exploit which David mentions?
