Debian DSA-3627-1 : phpmyadmin - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92527

Synopsis

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

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in phpMyAdmin, the web-based MySQL administration interface.

- CVE-2016-1927 The suggestPassword function relied on a non-secure random number generator which makes it easier for remote attackers to guess generated passwords via a brute-force approach.

- CVE-2016-2039 CSRF token values were generated by a non-secure random number generator, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by predicting a value.

- CVE-2016-2040 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-2041 phpMyAdmin does not use a constant-time algorithm for comparing CSRF tokens, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by measuring time differences.

- CVE-2016-2560 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-2561 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-5099 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-5701 For installations running on plain HTTP, phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to conduct BBCode injection attacks against HTTP sessions via a crafted URI.

- CVE-2016-5705 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-5706 phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a large array in the scripts parameter.

- CVE-2016-5731 A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-5733 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

- CVE-2016-5739 A specially crafted Transformation could leak information which a remote attacker could use to perform cross site request forgeries.

Solution

Upgrade the phpmyadmin packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u2.
