phpMyAdmin contains a local file inclusion vulnerability that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||dev-db/phpmyadmin on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.6.4_p2|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.6.4_p2|
phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the web.
Maksymilian Arciemowicz reported that in libraries/grab_globals.lib.php, the $__redirect parameter was not correctly validated. Systems running PHP in safe mode are not affected.
A local attacker may exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the web server.
Run PHP in safe mode.
All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.4_p2"
