Two vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "db" parameter in db_create.php is not properly sanitised before being stored. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is viewed.
2) Input passed to the "db" parameter in db_create.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation requires that the attacker has CREATE DATABASE credentials.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 2.11.2. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 18.104.22.168.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) Omer Singer, The DigiTrust Group
2) Reported by the vendor.
