Debian DLA-1821-1 : phpmyadmin security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 125957

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security vulnerabilities were fixed in phpmyadmin, a MySQL web administration tool, which prevent possible SQL injection attacks, CSRF, the bypass of user restrictions, information disclosure or denial of service.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u6.

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.
