PHPMyAdmin File Inclusion Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability

phpMyAdmin is a freely available, open source software package maintained by the phpMyAdmin Development Team. phpMyAdmin provides a graphical interface and friendly controls to MySQL.

A problem with the software package could allow arbitrary file inclusion. Due to the insufficient validation of input by the sql.php script, it is possible to supply an include file to the sql.php script, which will result in the code in the include file being executed. A remote user with knowledge of files on the local host, or the ability to upload an include file, may specify the file to be included in execution, which could result in code supplied include file being executed.

Therefore, it is possible for a remote user to supply an include file to the sql.php script, and execute arbitrary code.
