    Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in import.php in phpMyAdmin before 4.1.7 allows remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted filename in an import action.

    Not sure how this affects cPanel (security wise), but figured it would worth mentioning as I know cPanel packages phpMyAdmin with cPanel and I had to manually edit to make this change.

    How does this affect shared servers?

    Hello :)

    An internal case is open for the implementation of a newer version of phpMyAdmin. For reference, the case number is 82797. I have added a note to this case referencing this thread and CVE-2014-1879.

    Thank you.

    You can monitor the change log for that case number via:

    cPanel - Change Log

    Keep in mind that phpMyAdmin considers the vulnerability you referenced to be non critical.

    Thank you.

    Yes I saw that, but that's the reason I asked how does this affect shared servers. Because if that means they can inject code that would be executed as a different user, or even root (yikes!), then I consider it critical, if it's only executed as the user then there's no worries
