phpMyAdmin < 2.6.4-RC1 XSS (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3193


The remote host is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack


The version of phpMyAdmin installed on the remote host may suffer from two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to its failure to sanitize user input to the 'error' parameter of the 'error.php' script and in 'libraries/auth/cookie.auth.lib.php'. A remote attacker may use these vulnerabilities to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed in a user's browser within the context of the affected application.


Upgrade to version 2.6.4-RC1 or higher.
