FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- XSS vulnerability (2d2dcbb4-906c-11dc-a951-0016179b2dd5)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28165


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


The DigiTrust Group reports :

When creating a new database, a malicious user can use a client-side Web proxy to place malicious code in the db parameter of the POST request. Since db_create.php does not properly sanitize user-supplied input, an administrator could face a persistent XSS attack when the database names are displayed.


Update the affected package.
