Date: April 11, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #87952
ID: 200504-08

Synopsis

phpMyAdmin is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack.

Background

phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL databases from a web-browser.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/phpmyadmin
Vulnerable: < 2.6.2_rc1
Unaffected: >= 2.6.2_rc1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Oriol Torrent Santiago has discovered that phpMyAdmin fails to validate input to the "convcharset" variable, rendering it vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Impact

By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker can inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.2_rc1"
