phpMyAdmin < 2.11.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote web server is running a version of phpMyAdmin earlier than 2.11.10. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A cross-site request forgery attack because the application uses the 'unserialize()' PHP function on potentially unsafe data in the setup script.(CVE-2009-4605)

- An insecure file creation and deletion vulnerability due to the way phpMyAdmin creates temporary files.

Solution

Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 2.11.10 or later.
