XSS through FPD
With a specially crafted request, it is possible to trigger an XSS attack through the example OpenID authentication script.
We do not consider this vulnerability to be secure due to the non-standard required PHP setting for html_errors.
The attack requires html_errors = Off in php.ini, so it can be mitigated by setting html_errors = On. As an alternative mitigation means, the ./examples/openid.php file can be removed.
All 4.6.x versions (prior to 4.6.3), 4.4.x versions (prior to 126.96.36.199), and 4.0.x versions (prior to 188.8.131.52) are affected
Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 4.6.3, 184.108.40.206, or 220.127.116.11 or newer or apply patch listed below.
