Package : phpmyadmin Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-3197 CVE-2008-3456 CVE-2008-3457 CVE-2008-4096
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administrate MySQL databases over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Remote authenticated users could execute arbitrary code on the host running phpMyAdmin through manipulation of a script parameter.
Cross site scripting through the setup script was possible in rare circumstances.
Protection has been added against remote websites loading phpMyAdmin into a frameset.
Cross site request forgery allowed remote attackers to create a new database, but not perform any other action on it.
For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 4:18.104.22.168-8.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4:22.214.171.124-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.
If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below:
apt-get update will update the internal database apt-get upgrade will install corrected packages
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
