Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57390


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


The phpMyAdmin development team reports :

Using crafted url parameters, it was possible to produce XSS on the export panels in the server, database and table sections.

Crafted values entered in the setup interface can produce XSS; also, if the config directory exists and is writeable, the XSS payload can be saved to this directory.


Update the affected package.
