phpMyAdmin < 2.5.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2420
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host is running phpMyAdmin, an open-source software written in PHP to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web.
The remote version of this software is vulnerable to several flaws :
- It may be tricked into disclosing the physical path of the remote PHP installation
- It is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, which may allow an attacker to steal the cookies of your users
- It is vulnerable to a flaw that may allow an attacker to list the content of arbitrary directories on the remote server.
An attacker may use these flaws to gain more knowledge about the remote host and therefore set up more complex attacks against it.
SolutionUpgrade to phpMyAdmin 2.5.2 or higher.
