Local file inclusion vulnerability.
In the Export feature, a parameter specifying the export type was not correctly validated, opening the door to a local file inclusion attack.
We consider this vulnerability to be serious.
This vulnerability can be triggered only by someone who logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token protection prevents non-logged-in users to access the required form.
phpMyAdmin versions 4.x (prior to 4.0.0-rc3).
Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 4.0.0-rc3 or newer.
