An issue was discovered in phpMyAdmin before 4.8.5. When the
AllowArbitraryServer configuration setting is set to true, with the use of
a rogue MySQL server, 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, and the inadvertent ignoring of
"options(MYSQLI_OPT_LOCAL_INFILE" calls.
