Synopsis
========

phpMyAdmin contains a local file inclusion vulnerability that may lead
to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the
administration of MySQL over the web.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-db/phpmyadmin     < 2.6.4_p2                      >= 2.6.4_p2

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

Maksymilian Arciemowicz reported that in
libraries/grab_globals.lib.php, the $__redirect parameter was not
correctly validated. Systems running PHP in safe mode are not affected.

Impact
======

A local attacker may exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious
requests, causing the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of
the user running the web server.

Workaround
==========

Run PHP in safe mode.

Resolution
==========

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.4_p2"
