Here is the second release candidate for version 2.6.0. Thinks are going well, version 2.6.0-rc1 was tested a lot (with more than 45700 downloads). phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields.
After one month and 30000 downloads of 2.6.0-beta2, we are pleased to present the first release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.0 version.
This is phpMyAdmin 2.5.7, patch level 1, fixing the vulnerability dated 2004-06-29 released on BUGTRAQ. See Documentation.html, FAQ 8.2.
We would like to put emphasis on the disappointment we feel when a bugreporter does not contact the authors of a software first, before posting any exploits.
The common way to report this, is to give the developers a reasonable amount of time to respond to an exploit before it is made public.
