PhpMyAdmin multiple parameter cross-site scripting
|phpmyadmin-multiple-parameter-xss (30310)||Medium Risk|
phpMyAdmin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by multiple scripts. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the db, newname, query_history_latest, query_history_latest_db, querydisplay_tab or the pos parameters in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Note: The following scripts are reported to be vulnerable:
Upgrade to the latest version of phpMyAdmin (188.8.131.52 or later), available from the phpMyAdmin Web site. See References.
