Description

The register_globals emulation layer in grab_globals.php for phpMyAdmin before 2.6.4-pl3 does not perform safety checks on values in the _FILES array for uploaded files, which allows remote attackers to include arbitrary files by using direct requests to library scripts that do not use grab_globals.php, then modifying certain configuration values for the theme.

Solution(s)

  • phpmyadmin-upgrade-latest

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.
