    phpMyAdmin version 4.8.4 was released today Tue Dec 11 2018, and apparently contains some serious security and bug fixs.

    Security fix: phpMyAdmin 4.8.4 is released

    I am not sure how, or if, the cPanel included phpMyAdmin is impacted by these security vulnerabilities, but would be grateful if some indication were to be given regarding when we might expect to see an upgrade to this version.

    Hello @rpvw,

    When accessed through cPanel or Web Host Manager, phpMyAdmin is protected against CSRF/XSRF vulnerabilities like the ones referenced in the security report you provided. You can read about Security Tokens in our documentation for more information about this protection.

    That said, we aim to publish updates of this nature for software included with cPanel & WHM as soon as possible. Internal case CPANEL-24366 is open to include phpMyAdmin version 4.8.4 with cPanel & WHM. I'll monitor the case and update this thread with more information on the status of it's implementation as it becomes available.

    Thank you.
