Description

phpMyAdmin before 4.6.2 places tokens in query strings and does not arrange for them to be stripped before external navigation, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading (1) HTTP requests or (2) server logs.

  • 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.
