FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- SQL injection vulnerability (ce2f2ade-e7df-11dc-a701-000bcdc1757a)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

A phpMyAdmin security announcement report :

phpMyAdmin used the $_REQUEST superglobal as a source for its
parameters, instead of $_GET and $_POST. This means that on most
servers, a cookie with the same name as one of phpMyAdmin's parameters
can interfere.

Another application could set a cookie for the root path '/' with a
'sql_query' name, therefore overriding the user-submitted sql_query
because by default, the $_REQUEST superglobal imports first GET, then
POST then COOKIE data. Mitigation factor An attacker must trick the
victim into visiting a page on the same web server where he has placed
code that creates a malicious cookie.
