Summary

Cross-site Framing; XSS in setup.php

Description

We received two advisories from Aung Khant (YGN Ethical Hacker Group), and we wish to thank him for his work. It was permitted to display phpMyAdmin's frames inside another page, opening phishing or fooling possibilities; now, a parameter AllowThirdPartyFraming must be set to true in config.inc.php to allow this behavior. Also, XSS was possible for someone who could overwrite config/config.inc.php during the time this file is present in this directory.

Severity

We consider these vulnerabilities to be serious. See YGN's advisories for some mitigation factors.

Affected Versions

Versions before 2.11.8.

Solution

Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 2.11.8 or newer.
