|Description||phpMyAdmin 4.7.x and 4.8.x versions prior to 4.8.4 are affected by a series of CSRF flaws. By deceiving a user into clicking on a crafted URL, it is possible to perform harmful SQL operations such as renaming databases, creating new tables/routines, deleting designer pages, adding/deleting users, updating user passwords, killing SQL processes, etc.|
|Source||CVE (at NVD; CERT, LWN, oss-sec, fulldisc, bugtraq, EDB, Metasploit, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SUSE bugzilla/CVE, Mageia, GitHub code/issues, web search, more)|
Vulnerable and fixed packages
The table below lists information on source packages.
The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
|Package||Type||Release||Fixed Version||Urgency||Origin||Debian Bugs|
[stretch] - phpmyadmin <ignored> (Minor issue and too intrusive to backport)
[jessie] - phpmyadmin <ignored> (invasive with 49 patches to backport, only mitigate with _REQUEST->_POST instead of adding CSRF tokens)
Upstream explicitly fixed only the 4.7/4.8 branch but the problem exists in
earlier versions as well. At least parts of the listed commits are needed.
