FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- file disclosure vulnerability (9f0a405e-4edd-11d9-a9e7-0001020eed82)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19051


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


A phpMyAdmin security announcement reports :

File disclosure: on systems where the UploadDir mecanism is active, read_dump.php can be called with a crafted form; using the fact that the sql_localfile variable is not sanitized can lead to a file disclosure.

Enabling PHP safe mode on the server can be used as a workaround for this vulnerability.


Update the affected package.
