FreeBSD : phpMyAdmin -- path disclosure vulnerability (88f75070-abcf-11e5-83d3-6805ca0b3d42)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87614
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe phpMyAdmin development team reports :
By calling some scripts that are part of phpMyAdmin in an unexpected way, it is possible to trigger phpMyAdmin to display a PHP error message which contains the full path of the directory where phpMyAdmin is installed.
We consider these vulnerabilities to be non-critical.
This path disclosure is possible on servers where the recommended setting of the PHP configuration directive display_errors is set to on, which is against the recommendations given in the PHP manual for a production server.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
