Debian DLA-1415-1 : phpmyadmin security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 110945
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected phpmyadmin package.
