Description Ville Skyttä 2007-01-06 08:34:35 UTC

"phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via
a direct request for themes/darkblue_orange/layout.inc.php, which reveals the
path in an error message."

FC5+ apparently affected, even though I'm not sure if this is an issue at all.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-01-06 17:04:53 UTC
For any Fedora installation, you know the path just from inspecting the RPM. 
But this does disclose that the site is probably run on Fedora, which could
conceivably be an issue.  Not that our Apache doesn't by default do the same
thing, but that's configurable.

So yes, this is an issue, although it's a terribly minor one.

Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2007-01-08 01:42:35 UTC
I agree with Tibbs, I'm going to keep an eye on this to see if anything more
comes of it I'll update.  Otherwise I'll wait until the next version comes out.

Comment 3 Mike McGrath 2007-01-20 10:34:35 UTC
2.9.2 is out.  Its built and should be on the mirrors soon.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-20 11:03:03 UTC
It doesn't look like 2.9.2 fixes this though.

The demo server at http://pma.cihar.com/STABLE/ runs 2.9.2, but directly
requesting http://pma.cihar.com/STABLE/themes/darkblue_orange/layout.inc.php
after logging in reveals a path:

"Fatal error: Call to a member function getImgPath() on a non-object in

Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2007-03-10 21:33:29 UTC
The demo server in comment 4 seems to have been updated to but still
shows the same problem.

Comment 6 Tomas Hoger 2007-10-18 08:06:13 UTC
The demo server in comment 4 now advertises usage of and the problem
still occurs.

Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2007-11-21 20:45:53 UTC
Same problem on phpMyAdmin further on:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in
/srv/www/phpMyAdmin/themes/darkblue_orange/layout.inc.php on line 75

Proposal of a possible fix for CVE-2007-0095

Can somebody please review this patch carefully, because upstream seems
not to be interested to solve this issue at all.
