phpMyAdmin 4.x < 4.9.0 CSRF vulnerablity (PMASA-2019-4)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 125856
SynopsisThe remote web server hosts a PHP application that is affected by a CSRF vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the phpMyAdmin application hosted on the remote web server is 4.x prior to 4.9.0. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site request forgery (XSRF) vulnerability. A remote attacker can exploit this by tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted web page, allowing the attacker to disclose sensitive information, impersonate the user's identity, or inject malicious content into the victim's web browser.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to phpMyAdmin version 4.9.0 or later.
Alternatively, apply the patches referenced in the vendor advisories.
