Description

phpMyAdmin before 2.11.5 accesses $_REQUEST to obtain some parameters instead of $_GET and $_POST, which allows attackers in the same domain to override certain variables and conduct SQL injection and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks by using crafted cookies.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-db-phpmyadmin

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
