Dun has discovered a vulnerability in phpPgAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
Input passed via the "_language" parameter to libraries/lib.inc.php is not properly sanitised before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and URL-encoded NULL bytes.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
This vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 4.2.2.
