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-2010-4329 Cross site scripting was possible in search, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

  • CVE-2010-4480 Cross site scripting was possible in errors, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

  • CVE-2010-4481 Display of PHP's phpinfo() function was available to world, but only if this functionality had been enabled (defaults to off). This may leak some information about the host system.
