Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
The configuration setup script does not properly sanitise its output file, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via a crafted POST request. In Debian, the setup tool is protected through Apache HTTP basic authentication by default.
Various cross site scripting issues have been discovered that allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 22.214.171.124-5+lenny5.
For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 126.96.36.199-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
