Since the bug is public now
I didn't get a CVE in advance because I thought this was likely a
hardening fix. We couldn't find a way to exploit it to actually track
a user on our site. However, we kept it private until we released the
patch, since we weren't sure it couldn't be exploited on a wiki with
non-standard image handling.
