Low Nessus Plugin ID 32072


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


A phpMyAdmin security announcement report :

It is possible to read the contents of any file that the web server's user can access. The exact mechanism to achieve this won't be disclosed. If a user can upload on the same host where phpMyAdmin is running a PHP script that can read files with the rights of the web server's user, the current advisory does not describe an additional threat.


Update the affected package.
