[GLSA-200512-03] phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200512-03
(phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)


Stefan Esser from Hardened-PHP reported about multiple
vulnerabilties found in phpMyAdmin. The $GLOBALS variable permits
modifying the global variable import_blacklist to open phpMyAdmin to
local and remote file inclusion, depending on your PHP version
(CVE-2005-4079, PMASA-2005-9). Furthermore, it is also possible to
conduct an XSS attack via the $HTTP_HOST variable and a local and
remote file inclusion because the contents of the variable are under
total control of the attacker (CVE-2005-3665, PMASA-2005-8).

Impact

A remote attacker may exploit these vulnerabilities by sending
malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code with the
rights of the user running the web server. The cross-site scripting
issues permit a remote attacker to inject and execute malicious script
code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially
permiting unauthorized access to phpMyAdmin.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
