Comment 5 John Helmert III (ajak) 2020-06-25 19:02:05 UTC
CVE-2020-12051:

The CentralAuth extension through REL1_34 for MediaWiki allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive hidden account information via an api.php?action=query&meta=globaluserinfo&guiuser= request. In other words, the information can be retrieved via the action API even though access would be denied when simply visiting wiki/Special:CentralAuth in a web browser.

According to email announcement this appears to also be fixed in the 1.34 branch in 1.34.2:
