- Security. How much is implemented?
- Currently image authorization blocks all images. This is excessive. We do not want to block images such as http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/wiki/Image:Icon_warning.png . It would be nice to have a way to whitelist images. See: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_Authorization and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgWhitelistRead
- 2010.09.23 - Commented in
img_auth.phpthe lines of code which checked whether a user was logged in or not.
This prevented an anonymous user to see and download an image embedded in a publicly accessible page, such as the images in the Logos page. The user who wants to limit access to a file, has now to explicitly change permission settings in the protect tab.
