phpMyAdmin 4.8.x < 4.9.4 SQL Injection


The version of phpMyAdmin installed on the remote host does not correcty deal with malicious sql injected in place of a valid username when creating queries on the user accounts page leading to a SQL injection vulnerability. Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to phpMyAdmin version 4.9.4 or later.
