Multiple Local File Include Vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Detect multiple local file include vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
multiple local file include issues.

Description :

The installed version of phpMyAdmin suffers from multiple local file
include flaws due to its failure to sanitize user input prior to its use
in PHP 'include' and 'require_once' calls. Specifically, a remote
attacker can control values for the 'GLOBALS[cfg][ThemePath]' parameter
used in 'css/phpmyadmin.css.php' as well as the 'cfg[Server][extension]'
parameter use in 'libraries/database_interface.lib.php', which enables
him to read arbitrary files on the remote host and possibly even run
arbitrary code, subject to the rights of the web server process.
