Self-XSS due to unescaped HTML output in database structure page.
With a crafted table comment, it is possible to trigger an XSS in database structure page.
We consider this vulnerability to be non critical.
This vulnerability can be triggered only by someone who is logged in to phpMyAdmin, as the usual token protection prevents non-logged-in users from accessing the required page.
Versions 4.2.x (prior to 4.2.6) are affected.
