Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpMyAdmin: Multiple XSS vulnerabilities (GLSA 200411-36)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 27, 2004
Bug(s): #71819
ID: 200411-36

Synopsis

phpMyAdmin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

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: < 2.6.0_p3
Unaffected: >= 2.6.0_p3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Cedric Cochin has discovered multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin. These vulnerabilities can be exploited through the PmaAbsoluteUri parameter, the zero_rows parameter in read_dump.php, the confirm form, or an error message generated by the internal phpMyAdmin parser.

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-2.6.0_p3"
