PhpMyAdmin 4.8.1 Remote File Inclusion CVE-2018-12613 Scanner Detail

In PhpMyAdmin 4.8.1, there is Remote File Inclusion vulnerability.

An issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin 4.8.x before 4.8.2, in which an attacker can include (view and potentially execute) files on the server. The vulnerability comes from a portion of code where pages are redirected and loaded within phpMyAdmin, and an improper test for whitelisted pages. An attacker must be authenticated, except in the "$cfg['AllowArbitraryServer'] = true" case (where an attacker can specify any host he/she is already in control of, and execute arbitrary code on phpMyAdmin) and the "$cfg['ServerDefault'] = 0" case (which bypasses the login requirement and runs the vulnerable code without any authentication).

Some Advice for Common Problems

  • Keep your PhpMyAdmin Up-to-Date.
  • In addition to code update processes, organizations should also deploy WAFs to help identify active attacks.
