Description

Certain versions of phpMyAdmin do not properly sanitize input received through the 'theme' and 'db' parameters. As a result, a cross-site scripting attack can be launched to steal cookies and/or inject Javascript code into an unsuspecting user's domain.

Solution(s)

  • phpmyadmin-upgrade-latest
  • phpmyadmin-upgrade-2_8_0_4
