Package : phpmyadmin Vulnerability : several Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2006-1678 CVE-2006-2418 CVE-2005-3621 CVE-2005-3665 CVE-2006-5116 Debian Bug : 339437 340438 362567 368082 391090

The phpmyadmin update in DSA 1207 introduced a regression. This update corrects this flaw. For completeness, the original advisory text below:

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a program to administrate MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2005-3621

CRLF injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to conduct
HTTP response splitting attacks.

CVE-2005-3665

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) HTTP_HOST
variable and (2) various scripts in the libraries directory that
handle header generation.

CVE-2006-1678

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via scripts in the
themes directory.

CVE-2006-2418

A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote attackers
to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the db parameter of
footer.inc.php.

CVE-2006-5116

A remote attacker could overwrite internal variables through the
_FILES global variable.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.2-3sarge3.

For the upcoming stable release (etch) and unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.0.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
