FreeBSD : phpMyAdmin -- bypass 'no password' restriction (68611303-149e-11e7-b9bb-6805ca0b3d42)
High Nessus Plugin ID 99060
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe phpMyAdmin team reports : Summary Bypass $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] Description A vulnerability was discovered where the restrictions caused by $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false are bypassed under certain PHP versions. This can allow the login of users who have no password set even if the administrator has set $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] to false (which is also the default).
This behavior depends on the PHP version used (it seems PHP 5 is affected, while PHP 7.0 is not). Severity We consider this vulnerability to be of moderate severity. Mitigation factor Set a password for all users.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
