Description


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.
