GLSA-200903-32 : phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 35964
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-32 (phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin:
libraries/database_interface.lib.php in phpMyAdmin allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code via a request to server_databases.php with a sort_by parameter containing PHP sequences, which are processed by create_function (CVE-2008-4096).
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in pmd_pdf.php allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the db parameter, a different vector than CVE-2006-6942 and CVE-2007-5977 (CVE-2008-4775).
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in phpMyAdmin allows remote authenticated attackers to perform unauthorized actions as the administrator via a link or IMG tag to tbl_structure.php with a modified table parameter. NOTE: this can be leveraged to conduct SQL injection attacks and execute arbitrary code (CVE-2008-5621).
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin allow remote attackers to conduct SQL injection attacks via unknown vectors related to the table parameter, a different vector than CVE-2008-5621 (CVE-2008-5622).
A remote attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the webserver, inject and execute SQL with the rights of phpMyAdmin or conduct XSS attacks against other users.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-db/phpmyadmin-22.214.171.124'
