Description

SecureFileStore (prev. SecureImages) solves a general security vulnerability of MediaWikis.

Usage / Features

Up to now pictures and documents could be found with search engines like google, even then the wiki-sites were protected by user permissions.

Especially in a business environment it is important that uploaded data is only accessible for authorized users. Pictures and documents should be visible for registered users.

Technical information

Configuration

This extension offers no configurations.

Rights (permissions)

When the SecureFileStore-Extension is active, then the pictures and documents are only shown when the appropriate authorization is met. If not, then there will be an error code “403 Forbidden”. Additionally the webserver administrator has to ban the HTTP-access to the MediaWiki-upload-directory.

Requirements

SecureFileStore requires BlueSpiceFoundation.
