Multiple full path disclosure vulnerabilities
This PMASA contains information on multiple full-path disclosure vulnerabilities reported in phpMyAdmin.
By specially crafting requests in the following areas, it is possible to trigger phpMyAdmin to display a PHP error message which contains the full path of the directory where phpMyAdmin is installed.
We consider these vulnerabilities to be non-critical.
To mitigate these issues, it is possible to remove the setup script and examples subdirectories: ./setup/ and ./examples/
All 4.6.x versions (prior to 4.6.3), 4.4.x versions (prior to 220.127.116.11), and 4.0.x versions (prior to 18.104.22.168) are affected
Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 4.6.3, 22.214.171.124, or 126.96.36.199 or newer or apply patches listed below.
