phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the
administration of MySQL databases from a web-browser.
Cezary Tomczak reported that an undefined UploadDir variable exposes an
information disclosure vulnerability when running on shared hosts.
<impact type="low">
A remote attacker with CREATE TABLE permissions can exploit this
vulnerability via a specially crafted HTTP POST request in order to
read arbitrary files.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-db/phpmyadmin-;</code>
