Description

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in phpMyAdmin 2.11.x before 2.11.9.4 and 3.x before 3.1.1.0 allows remote attackers to perform unauthorized actions as the administrator via a link or IMG tag to tbl_structure.php with a modified table parameter. NOTE: other unspecified pages are also reachable, but they have the same root cause. NOTE: this can be leveraged to conduct SQL injection attacks and execute arbitrary code.
