Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been found in the MIME-based transformation system
of phpMyAdmin, which may allow remote execution of arbitrary commands
if PHP's "safe mode" is disabled.

Background
==========

phpMyAdmin is a popular web-based MySQL administration tool written in
PHP. It allows users to browse and administer a MySQL database from a
web-browser. Transformations are a phpMyAdmin feature allowing plug-ins
to rewrite the contents of any column seen in phpMyAdmin's Browsing
mode, including using insertion of PHP or JavaScript code.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-db/phpmyadmin     < 2.6.0_p2                      >= 2.6.0_p2

Description
===========

A defect was found in phpMyAdmin's MIME-based transformation system,
when used with "external" transformations.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
commands on the server with the rights of the HTTP server user.

Workaround
==========

Enabling PHP safe mode ("safe_mode = On" in php.ini) may serve as a
temporary workaround.

Resolution
==========

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.0_p2"
    # emerge ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.0_p2"
