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:

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 unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4:
