Subject: 'portable-phpMyAdmin (WordPress Plugin)'
	Authentication Bypass (CVE-2012-5469)

I. DESCRIPTION
---------------------------------------
portable-phpMyAdmin doesn't verify an existing WordPress session
(privileged or not) when accessing the plugin file path directly. Because
of how this plugin works, a default installation will provide a full
phpMyAdmin console with the privilege level of the MySQL configuration of
WordPress.


II. TESTED VERSION
---------------------------------------
1.3.0


III. PoC EXPLOIT
---------------------------------------
Navigate to http://host/wp-content/plugins/portable-phpmyadmin/wp-pma-modand
you will be presented with the full portable-phpMyAdmin web interface
without the requirement of a session or any credential.


IV. SOLUTION
---------------------------------------
Upgrade to version 1.3.1
