FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- information disclosure vulnerability (a7062952-9023-11d9-a22c-0001020eed82)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A phpMyAdmin security announcement reports :

By calling some scripts that are part of phpMyAdmin in an unexpected
way (especially scripts in the libraries subdirectory), it is possible
to trigger phpMyAdmin to display a PHP error message which contains
the full path of the directory where phpMyAdmin is installed.

Mitigation factor: This path disclosure is possible on servers where
the recommended setting of the PHP configuration directive
display_errors is set to on, which is against the recommendations
given in the PHP manual.
