Vulnerability Assessment Details
phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-07
(phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)
phpMyAdmin contains several security issues:
Maksymilian Arciemowicz has discovered multiple variable injection
vulnerabilities that can be exploited through "$cfg" and "GLOBALS"
variables and localized strings
It is possible to force
phpMyAdmin to disclose information in error messages
to correctly escape special characters
By sending a specially-crafted request, a possible hacker can include
and execute arbitrary PHP code or cause path information disclosure.
Furthermore the XSS issue permits a possible hacker to inject malicious script
code, potentially compromising the victim's browser. Lastly the
improper escaping of special characters results in unintended privilege
settings for MySQL.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.1_p2-r1"
Network Security Threat Level: Medium
