phpMyAdmin 3.4.x < 3.4.5 Multiple XSS (PMASA-2011-14)

Low

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions 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.

Solution

Apply the vendor patches or upgrade to phpMyAdmin 3.4.5 or later.
