Description :

A phpMyAdmin security announcement report :

It is possible to read the contents of any file that the web server's
user can access. The exact mechanism to achieve this won't be
disclosed. If a user can upload on the same host where phpMyAdmin is
running a PHP script that can read files with the rights of the web
server's user, the current advisory does not describe an additional
threat.
