Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-03-30 11:39:00 UTC
An cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way phpPgAdmin, a web-based PostgreSQL database administration tool, performed presentation of the default list of functions, being present in the database, to the user upon request. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page, which once visited by an unsuspecting, valid phpPgAdmin user could lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of logged in phpPgAdmin user.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2012-03-30 11:43:49 UTC
This issue previously affected the versions of the phpPgAdmin package, as shipped with Fedora release of 15, 16, and as shipped with Fedora EPEL 5 and Fedora EPEL 6 versions.

Though the following phpPgAdmin have been scheduled already:
1) phpPgAdmin-5.0.4-1.fc15 for Fedora 15,
2) phpPgAdmin-5.0.4-1.fc16 for Fedora 16,
3) phpPgAdmin-5.0.4-1.el5  for Fedora EPEL 5,
4) phpPgAdmin-5.0.4-1.el6  for Fedora EPEL 6

to correct this deficiency. Once the above packages have passed the required level of testing, they will be pushed to the -stable repository for each of the particular releases above.
