phpmyadmin -- arbitrary file include and XSS vulnerabilities


A phpMyAdmin security announcement reports:

We received two bug reports by Maksymilian Arciemowicz about those vulnerabilities and we wish to thank him for his work. The vulnerabilities apply to those points:

  1. css/phpmyadmin.css.php was vulnerable against $cfg and GLOBALS variable injections. This way, a possible attacker could manipulate any configuration parameter. Using phpMyAdmin's theming mechanism, he was able to include arbitrary files. This is especially dangerous if php is not running in safe mode.
  2. A possible attacker could manipulate phpMyAdmin's localized strings via the URL and inject harmful JavaScript code this way, which could be used for XSS attacks.
