Summary:
phpMyAdmin is prone to multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The following SQL injection vulnerabilities exist: - An SQL injection vulnerability was found in how phpMyAdmin retrieves the current username - An SQL injection vulnerability has been discovered where certain parameters are not properly escaped when generating certain queries for search actions within phpMyAdmin - An SQL injection vulnerability was discovered where malicious code could be used to trigger an XSS attack through retrieving and displaying results.

Impact:
Successful exploitation would allow an attacker to: - create a specially-crafted username and then trick the victim in to performing specific actions with that user account (such as editing its privileges) - generate specially-crafted database or table names - insert specially-crafted data in to certain database tables, which when retrieved (for instance, through the Browse tab) can trigger an XSS attack

Affected Versions:
phpMyAdmin prior to version 4.9.5 and 5.x prior to 5.0.2.

Recommendations:
Update to version 4.9.5, 5.0.2 or later.
