Description

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in setup.php in phpMyAdmin before 2.11.8 allows user-assisted remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted setup arguments. NOTE: this issue can only be exploited in limited scenarios in which the attacker must be able to modify config/config.inc.php.

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.
