Phpmyadmin 4.0.0 Obtain Information CSRF Vulnerability
16 Aug. 2016
The Transformation implementation in phpMyAdmin 4.0.x before 188.8.131.52, 4.4.x before 184.108.40.206, and 4.6.x before 4.6.3 does not use the no-referrer Content Security Policy (CSP) protection mechanism, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct CSRF attacks by reading an authentication token in a Referer header, related to libraries/Header.php.
A vulnerability was reported where a specially crafted Transformation could be used to leak information including the authentication token. This could be used to direct a CSRF attack against a user.
Furthermore, the CSP code used in version 4.0.x is outdated and has been updated to more modern standards.
