DLA-1692-1 phpmyadmin -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 27 Feb 2019
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 920823.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-6799.
- More information:
An information leak issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin. An attacker can read any file on the server that the web server's user can access. This is related to the mysql.allow_local_infile PHP configuration. When the AllowArbitraryServer configuration setting is set to false (default), the attacker needs a local MySQL account. When set to true, the attacker can exploit this with the use of a rogue MySQL server.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u5.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
