SQL injection attack as control user
A vulnerability was discovered in the user interface preference feature where a user can execute an SQL injection attack against the account of the control user.
We consider this vulnerability to be serious.
The server must have a control user account created in MySQL and configured in phpMyAdmin; installations without a control user are not vulnerable.
All 4.6.x versions (prior to 4.6.4), 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 4.6.4, 22.214.171.124, or 126.96.36.199 or newer or apply patch listed below.
