phpMyAdmin -- XSS vulnerabilities in SQL debug output and server monitor page.

Affected packages
4.2.0 <= phpMyAdmin <


VuXML ID 25b78f04-59c8-11e4-b711-6805ca0b3d42
Discovery 2014-10-21
Entry 2014-10-22

The phpMyAdmin development team reports:

With a crafted database or table name it is possible to trigger an XSS in SQL debug output when enabled and in server monitor page when viewing and analysing executed queries.

This vulnerability can be triggered only by someone who is logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token protection prevents non-logged-in users from accessing the required pages. Moreover, debugging SQL is a developer option which is disabled by default and expected to be disabled in production environments.
