3.4 < phpMyAdmin < 3.4.10.2

Details

VuXML ID a81161d2-790f-11e1-ac16-e0cb4e266481
Discovery 2012-03-28
Entry 2012-03-28

The phpMYAdmin development team reports:

The show_config_errors.php scripts did not validate the presence of the configuration file, so an error message shows the full path of this file, leading to possible further attacks. For the error messages to be displayed, php.ini's error_reporting must be set to E_ALL and display_errors must be On (these settings are not recommended on a production server in the PHP manual).
