FreeBSD : phpmyadmin -- XSS vulnerability in SQL editor (7a59e283-c60b-11e5-bf36-6805ca0b3d42)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 88475


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


The phpMyAdmin development team reports :

With a crafted SQL query, it is possible to trigger an XSS attack in the SQL editor.

We consider this vulnerability to be non-critical.

This vulnerability can be triggered only by someone who is logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token protection prevents non-logged-in users from accessing the required pages.


Update the affected package.
