phpMyAdmin < 2.6.4 Multiple XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of phpMyAdmin installed on the
remote host may suffer from two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
due to its failure to sanitize user input to the 'error' parameter of
the 'error.php' script and in 'libraries/auth/cookie.auth.lib.php'. A
remote attacker may use these vulnerabilities to cause arbitrary HTML
and script code to be executed in a user's browser within the context
of the affected application.
