Fedora 8 : phpMyAdmin-184.108.40.206-1.fc8 (2008-2825)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 31745
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update addresses PMASA-2008-2 / CVE-2008-1567: phpMyAdmin upstream received an advisory from Jim Hermann: It saves sensitive information like the MySQL username and password and the Blowfish secret key in session data, which might be unprotected on a shared host.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected phpMyAdmin package.
