- More information:
It was found that in libphp-adodb, a PHP database abstraction layer library, an attacker can inject values into the PostgreSQL connection string by bypassing adodb_addslashes(). The function can be bypassed in phppgadmin, for example, by surrounding the username in quotes and submitting with other parameters injected in between.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 5.20.9-1+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-adodb packages.
