CVE Reference(s):

Description


Nasir Simbolon has reported two vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin, allowing malicious people to manipulate certain configuration settings and inject arbitrary code.

1) It is possible to supply new configuration options in "left.php" to an array (e.g. the arrays storing mysql connection configuration details). This could potentially be exploited to access other mysql servers than those specified in the configuration file.

Example:
left.php?server=4&cfg[Servers][4][host]=hostname&cfg[Servers][4][port]=port

2) Certain input passed to an "eval" statement isn't properly filtered, which allows arbitrary PHP code to be injected.

Successful exploitation requires "$cfg['LeftFrameLight']" to bet set to "FALSE" in "config.inc.php".

The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 2.5.7. Prior versions may also be affected.


Solution:
This has been fixed in version 2.5.7-pl1.
