Serious vulnerability in phpMyAdmin

Mensagens Recomendadas


All versions of phpMyAdmin, the popular MySQL administration tool, up to and including version and the 3.0.0 release candidate 1, suffer from a code execution vulnerability. Versions and 3.0.0-rc2 have been released with the vulnerability fixed. The phpMyAdmin developers describe the flaw as serious and recommend upgrading to the appropriate new version.

The advisory released by the phpMyAdmin developers stated the problem was that parameters of sort_by were not escaped and an attacker, if they were already logged in, could manipulate this to call the PHP exec function and run arbitrary code. The vulnerability was discovered by Norman Hippert in 3.0.0 RC1 initially, and checking showed that previous versions were also affected.

A partial workaround, for those unable to upgrade immediately, is to set disable_functions = exec in php.ini, but this change may have unwanted side effects, as it will block any PHP program from starting processes.

Update The vulnerability actually allows any PHP code to be run, so the above workaround is only effective against attacks where exec would be called. It is therefore recommended that users upgrade as soon as possible.
