Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-07-25 11:00:22 UTC
A session values manipulation flaw was found in the way phpMyAdmin, the MySQL over WWW administration tool, performed sanitization of the user-provided query string, when the Swekey extension based authentication method was enabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to manipulate the PHP session superglobal variable via specially-crafted query string provided to the Swekey authentication module.
