phpMyAdmin Team reports:

Setup script used to generate configuration can be fooled using a crafted POST request to include arbitrary PHP code in generated configuration file. Combined with ability to save files on server, this can allow unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary PHP code. This issue is on different parameters than PMASA-2009-3 and it was missed out of our radar because it was not existing in 2.11.x branch.


CVE Name CVE-2009-1285
