GLSA-200906-03 : phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 39570
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200906-03 (phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin:
Greg Ose discovered that the setup script does not sanitize input properly, leading to the injection of arbitrary PHP code into the configuration file (CVE-2009-1151).
Manuel Lopez Gallego and Santiago Rodriguez Collazo reported that data from cookies used in the 'Export' page is not properly sanitized (CVE-2009-1150).
A remote unauthorized attacker could exploit the first vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running phpMyAdmin and conduct Cross-Site Scripting attacks using the second vulnerability.
Removing the 'scripts/setup.php' file protects you from CVE-2009-1151.
SolutionAll phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-db/phpmyadmin-22.214.171.124'
