Description

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

  • CVE-2008-7251 phpMyAdmin may create a temporary directory, if the configured directory does not exist yet, with insecure filesystem permissions.

  • CVE-2008-7252 phpMyAdmin uses predictable filenames for temporary files, which may lead to a local denial of service attack or privilege escalation.

  • CVE-2009-4605 The setup.php script shipped with phpMyAdmin may unserialize untrusted data, allowing for cross site request forgery.
