FreeBSD : phpMyAdmin -- path disclosure vulnerability (88f75070-abcf-11e5-83d3-6805ca0b3d42)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The phpMyAdmin development team reports :

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

We consider these vulnerabilities to be non-critical.

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 for a
production server.
