An issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin. With a crafted username or a table
name, it was possible to inject SQL statements in the tracking
functionality that would run with the privileges of the control user. This
gives read and write access to the tables of the configuration storage
database, and if the control user has the necessary privileges, read access
to some tables of the MySQL database. All 4.6.x versions (prior to 4.6.5),
4.4.x versions (prior to, and 4.0.x versions (prior to
are affected.
