Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200906-03)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 29, 2009
Bug(s): #263711
ID: 200906-03

Synopsis

Multiple errors in phpMyAdmin might allow the remote execution of arbitrary code or a Cross-Site Scripting attack.

Background

phpMyAdmin is a web-based management tool for MySQL databases.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/phpmyadmin
Vulnerable: < 2.11.9.5
Unaffected: >= 2.11.9.5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin:
  • Greg Ose discovered that the setup script does not sanitize input properly, leading to the injection of arbitrary PHP code into the configuration file (CVE-2009-1151).
  • Manuel Lopez Gallego and Santiago Rodriguez Collazo reported that data from cookies used in the "Export" page is not properly sanitized (CVE-2009-1150).


Impact

A remote unauthorized attacker could exploit the first vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running phpMyAdmin and conduct Cross-Site Scripting attacks using the second vulnerability.

Workaround

Removing the "scripts/setup.php" file protects you from CVE-2009-1151.

Resolution

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.11.9.5"
