CVE-2013-3239 (
  phpMyAdmin 3.5.x before 3.5.8 and 4.x before 4.0.0-rc3, when a SaveDir
  directory is configured, allows remote authenticated users to execute
  arbitrary code by using a double extension in the filename of an export
  file, leading to interpretation of this file as an executable file by the
  Apache HTTP Server, as demonstrated by a .php.sql filename.

CVE-2013-3238 (
  phpMyAdmin 3.5.x before 3.5.8 and 4.x before 4.0.0-rc3 allows remote
  authenticated users to execute arbitrary code via a /e\x00 sequence, which
  is not properly handled before making a preg_replace function call within
  the "Replace table prefix" feature.
