Description peter.larsen 2020-03-27 10:26:33 UTC
While vuxml.freebsd.org link defines everything below phpMyAdmin version 4.9.5 as vulnerable, pkg identifies 4.9.5 as vulnerable 

# pkg info | grep phpMyAdmin
phpMyAdmin-php72-4.9.5         Set of PHP-scripts to manage MySQL over the web

# pkg audit -F
vulnxml file up-to-date
phpMyAdmin-php72-4.9.5 is vulnerable:
phpMyAdmin -- SQL injection

Comment 1 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-03-27 10:36:07 UTC
Its the "phpMyAdmin{-php*} < 5.0.2" entries that are causing this:

phpMyAdmin 	< 	5.0.2
phpMyAdmin-php72 	< 	5.0.2
phpMyAdmin-php73 	< 	5.0.2
phpMyAdmin-php74 	< 	5.0.2

One would address this in the short term by removing the "< 5.0.2" entries for the *phpMyAdmin* (not phpmyadmin5) packages, as all 5.x versions live in the phpmyadmin5 port.

This is an issue, as at some point databases/phpmyadmin will be presumably updated to 5.x (when say, 4.x is deprecated), at which point the vuxml entries will be incorrect
Comment 2 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-03-27 10:42:15 UTC
Since there is a single <package> definition (see below), each (every) <range> is added for each (every) <name>


Two <package> blocks, one with phpmyadmin, the other with phpmyadmin5, each with their own ranges, should resolve the issue
