Title: phpMyAdmin: Multiple XSS vulnerabilities (GLSA 200411-36)
Date: November 27, 2004
phpMyAdmin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL databases from a web-browser.
Vulnerable: < 2.6.0_p3
Unaffected: >= 2.6.0_p3
Architectures: All supported architectures
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.
By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker can inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.0_p3"
