FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- Full path disclosure vulnerability in SQL parser (78b4ebfb-c60b-11e5-bf36-6805ca0b3d42)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The phpMyAdmin development team reports :

By calling a particular script that is 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 this vulnerability 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.
