    3 MediaWiki/OWASP (who uses MediaWiki) does not support SVG as a viewable filetype. As pointed out in comment:43, upon upload the SVGs are converted to pngs. No SVG is ever outputted on the frontend. You can read about their process (which basically uses a series of PHP libraries in case of fallback to get a copy of the SVG rendering and save it in the png on the fly and then serves the SVG) here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_administration#SVG
