phpMyAdmin import_blacklist Variable Overwriting Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using phpMyAdmin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The version of phpMyAdmin installed on the remote host fails to
properly protect the global 'import_blacklist' variable, which is used
in the 'libraries/grab_globals.lib.php' script to protect global
variables in its register_globals emulation layer. An unauthenticated
attacker can exploit this flaw to overwrite arbitrary variables,
thereby opening the application up to remote / local file include as
well as cross-site scripting attacks.
