Description

According to its self-identified version number, the phpMyAdmin install hosted on the remote web server is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

The vulnerability is in the replication-setup functionality in js/replication.js in phpMyAdmin 3.4.x before 3.4.10.1, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted database name.
