Omer Singer has discovered a vulnerability in phpMyAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed in the URL to server_status.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
Successful exploitation requires that the target user has valid user credentials.
NOTE: Some other potential cross-site scripting problems have also been fixed by the vendor.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 188.8.131.52. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 184.108.40.206.
