Package        : phpmyadmin
Version        : 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-6799
Debian Bug     : 920823


An information leak issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin. An attacker
can read any file on the server that the web server's user can
access. This is related to the mysql.allow_local_infile PHP
configuration. When the AllowArbitraryServer configuration setting is
set to false (default), the attacker needs a local MySQL account. When
set to true, the attacker can exploit this with the use of a rogue
MySQL server.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
4:4.2.12-2+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
