Code execution vulnerability
We received an advisory from Norman Hippert and we wish to thank him for his work. The server_databases.php script was vulnerable to an attack coming from a user who is already logged-on to phpMyAdmin, where he can execute shell code (if the PHP configuration permits commands like exec).
We consider this vulnerability to be serious.
Versions before 188.8.131.52.
Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 184.108.40.206 or newer.
