Description

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

  • CVE-2008-4096 Remote authenticated users could execute arbitrary code on the host running phpMyAdmin through manipulation of a script parameter.

  • CVE-2008-3457 Cross site scripting through the setup script was possible in rare circumstances.

  • CVE-2008-3456 Protection has been added against remote websites loading phpMyAdmin into a frameset.

  • CVE-2008-3197 Cross site request forgery allowed remote attackers to create a new database, but not perform any other action on it.
