Description

phpMyAdmin before 2.11.5.1 stores the MySQL (1) username and (2) password, and the (3) Blowfish secret key, in cleartext in a Session file under /tmp, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-phpmyadmin
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
