Updated mediawiki packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Kevin Israel (Wikipedia user PleaseStand) identified and reported two
vectors for injecting Javascript in CSS that bypassed MediaWiki's blacklist
(CVE-2013-4567, CVE-2013-4568).

Internal review while debugging a site issue discovered that MediaWiki
and the CentralNotice extension were incorrectly setting cache headers when
a user was autocreated, causing the user's session cookies to be cached,
and returned to other users (CVE-2013-4572).
