New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

phpMyAdmin before 4.6.2 places tokens in query strings and does not arrange for them to be stripped before external navigation, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading (1) HTTP requests or (2) server logs.
