Description

The phpMyAdmin development team reports:

Summary

Local file inclusion through transformation feature

Description

A flaw has been found where an attacker can exploit

phpMyAdmin to leak the contents of a local file. The

attacker must have access to the phpMyAdmin Configuration

Storage tables, although these can easily be created in any

database to which the attacker has access. An attacker must

have valid credentials to log in to phpMyAdmin; this

vulnerability does not allow an attacker to circumvent the

login system.

Severity

We consider this vulnerability to be severe.

Summary

XSRF/CSRF vulnerability in phpMyAdmin

Description

By deceiving a user to click on a crafted URL, it is

possible to perform harmful SQL operations such as renaming

databases, creating new tables/routines, deleting designer

pages, adding/deleting users, updating user passwords,

killing SQL processes, etc.

Severity

We consider this vulnerability to be of moderate severity.

Summary

XSS vulnerability in navigation tree

Description

A Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability was found in the

navigation tree, where an attacker can deliver a payload to

a user through a specially-crafted database/table name.

Severity

We consider this attack to be of moderate severity.

Mitigation factor

The stored XSS vulnerabilities can be triggered only by

someone who logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token

protection prevents non-logged-in users from accessing the

required forms.
