Access for an unprivileged user to MySQL user list.
An unpriviledged user could view the MySQL user list and manipulate the tabs displayed in phpMyAdmin for them.
We consider this vulnerability to be non critical.
This vulnerability can be triggered only by someone who is logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token protection prevents non-logged-in users from accessing the required pages. Moreover, the configuration storage must be set up for the user groups feature.
Versions 4.1.x (prior to 126.96.36.199) and 4.2.x (prior to 4.2.6) are affected.
Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 188.8.131.52 or newer, or 4.2.6 or newer, or apply the patch listed below.
