Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

A phpMyAdmin security announcement reports :

We received two bug reports by Maksymilian Arciemowicz about those
vulnerabilities and we wish to thank him for his work. The
vulnerabilities apply to those points :

- css/phpmyadmin.css.php was vulnerable against $cfg and GLOBALS
variable injections. This way, a possible attacker could manipulate
any configuration parameter. Using phpMyAdmin's theming mechanism, he
was able to include arbitrary files. This is especially dangerous if
php is not running in safe mode.

- A possible attacker could manipulate phpMyAdmin's localized strings
via the URL and inject harmful JavaScript code this way, which could
be used for XSS attacks.
