phpMyAdmin v3.5.2.2 backdoor


One server from the mirror system was distributing a phpMyAdmin kit containing a backdoor. One of the mirrors, namely cdnetworks-kr-1, was being used to distribute a modified archive of phpMyAdmin, which includes a backdoor. This backdoor is located in file server_sync.php and allows an attacker to remotely execute PHP code. Another file, js/cross_framing_protection.js, has also been modified. We currently know only about being affected, check if your download contains a file named server_sync.php.


Check your phpMyAdmin distribution and download it again from a trusted mirror if your copy contains a file named server_sync.php.
