Low Nessus Plugin ID 33375


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


Secunia report :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed via unspecified parameters to files in /libraries is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that 'register_globals' is enabled and support for '.htaccess' files is disabled.


Update the affected package.
