DSA-2097-1 phpmyadmin -- insufficient input sanitising
- Date Reported:
- 29 Aug 2010
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2010-3055, CVE-2010-3056.
- More information:
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
The configuration setup script does not properly sanitise its output file, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via a crafted POST request. In Debian, the setup tool is protected through Apache HTTP basic authentication by default.
Various cross site scripting issues have been discovered that allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 188.8.131.52-5+lenny5.
For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 184.108.40.206-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
- Fixed in:
Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (lenny)
- Architecture-independent component:
