Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpMyAdmin: SQL injection vulnerability (GLSA 200803-15)
Severity: low
Exploitable: local
Date: March 09, 2008
Bug(s): #212000
ID: 200803-15

Synopsis

A SQL injection vulnerability has been discovered in phpMyAdmin.

Background

phpMyAdmin is a free web-based database administration tool.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/phpmyadmin
Vulnerable: < 2.11.5
Unaffected: >= 2.11.5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Richard Cunningham reported that phpMyAdmin uses the $_REQUEST variable of $_GET and $_POST as a source for its parameters.

Impact

An attacker could entice a user to visit a malicious web application that sets an "sql_query" cookie and is hosted on the same domain as phpMyAdmin, and thereby conduct SQL injection attacks with the privileges of the user authenticating in phpMyAdmin afterwards.

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-2.11.5"


References

CVE-2008-1149
