At one time researching wikis I tried Twiki and shortly thereafter a major
security issue was discovered and lots of public Twikis got exploited. I
took down my Twiki and put my wiki research on the back burner, but stayed
subscribed to their new security announcement list. I've seen a few more
exploits discovered.

Twiki is likely good inside a LAN but I'd be uncomfortable with deploying a
public one.

I've got a Mediawiki deployed, and its high-profile use with Wikipedia
would suggest it's more likely to be regularly attacked, and therefore
likely to be more audited and hence more bullet-proof.
