Debian DLA-1415-1 : phpmyadmin security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 110945


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Several vulnerabilities were found in phpMyAdmin, the web-based MySQL administration interface, including SQL injection attacks, denial of service, arbitrary code execution, cross-site scripting, server-side request forgery, authentication bypass, and file system traversal.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected phpmyadmin package.
