phpMyAdmin 4.0.x < 4.0.10.9 / 4.2.x < 4.2.13.2 / 4.3.x < 4.3.11.1 Information Disclosure Vulnerability (PMASA-2015-1)

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9103
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

Versions of phpMyAdmin 4.0.x prior to 4.0.10.9, 4.2.x prior to 4.2.13.2, or 4.3.x prior to 4.3.11.1 are unpatched for an information disclosure vulnerability due to the length of compressed HTTPS responses not being hidden. This allows a remote attacker, using a series of crafted requests, to obtain the CSRF token via a BREACH attack.

Solution

Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 4.0.10.9 / 4.2.13.2 / 4.3.11.1 or later, or apply the patches referenced in the vendor advisory.
