Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a program to administrate MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2007-1325 The PMA_ArrayWalkRecursive function in libraries/common.lib.php does not limit recursion on arrays provided by users, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (web server crash) via an array with many dimensions.

This issue affects only the stable distribution (Etch).

  • CVE-2007-1395 Incomplete blacklist vulnerability in index.php allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks by injecting arbitrary JavaScript or HTML in a (1) db or (2) table parameter value followed by an uppercase </SCRIPT> end tag, which bypasses the protection against lowercase </script>.

This issue affects only the stable distribution (Etch).

  • CVE-2007-2245 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via (1) the fieldkey parameter to browse_foreigners.php or (2) certain input to the PMA_sanitize function.

  • CVE-2006-6942 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML or web script via (1) a comment for a table name, as exploited through (a) db_operations.php, (2) the db parameter to (b) db_create.php, (3) the newname parameter to db_operations.php, the (4) query_history_latest, (5) query_history_latest_db, and (6) querydisplay_tab parameters to (c) querywindow.php, and (7) the pos parameter to (d) sql.php.

This issue affects only the oldstable distribution (Sarge).

  • CVE-2006-6944 phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to bypass Allow/Deny access rules that use IP addresses via false headers.

This issue affects only the oldstable distribution (Sarge).
