DescriptionVersions of phpMyAdmin 3.4.x earlier than 3.4.5 are potentially affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities :
- The data used in the row content display after inline editing is not properly sanitized before it is passed back to the browser.
- The data passed in as table, column, and index names is not properly sanitized before it is passed back to the browser.
A remote attacker may use these issues to cause arbitrary code to be executed in a user's browser, to steal authentication cookies and the like.
