An issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin. By calling some scripts that are
part of phpMyAdmin in an unexpected way, it is possible to trigger
phpMyAdmin to display a PHP error message which contains the full path of
the directory where phpMyAdmin is installed. During an execution timeout in
the export functionality, the errors containing the full path of the
directory of phpMyAdmin are written to the export file. All 4.6.x versions
(prior to 4.6.5), and 4.4.x versions (prior to 4.4.15.9) are affected. This
CVE is for the fopen wrapper issue.
