Hi Tyron

your changes include unprotected (does not require user being logged in
and no token check) file file_echo.php, which allows to download
arbitrary data. This could be easily used by attacker to pretend data
is coming from safe location (where phpMyAdmin is running), while it
would actually come from attacker.

I've removed defining of PMA_MINUMUM_COMMON (which does skip all the
checks) from this file. As you already seem to pass token with the
request, no other change should be needed, but please take care of such
dangerous code in future.
