Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200512-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 11, 2005
Bug(s): #114662
ID: 200512-03

Synopsis

Multiple flaws in phpMyAdmin may lead to several XSS issues and local and remote file inclusion vulnerabilities.

Background

phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the web.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/phpmyadmin
Vulnerable: < 2.7.0_p1
Unaffected: >= 2.7.0_p1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Stefan Esser from Hardened-PHP reported about multiple vulnerabilties found in phpMyAdmin. The $GLOBALS variable allows modifying the global variable import_blacklist to open phpMyAdmin to local and remote file inclusion, depending on your PHP version (CVE-2005-4079, PMASA-2005-9). Furthermore, it is also possible to conduct an XSS attack via the $HTTP_HOST variable and a local and remote file inclusion because the contents of the variable are under total control of the attacker (CVE-2005-3665, PMASA-2005-8).

Impact

A remote attacker may exploit these vulnerabilities by sending malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the web server. The cross-site scripting issues allow a remote attacker to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially allowing unauthorized access to phpMyAdmin.

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-2.7.0_p1"
