Description

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

Cross site scripting was possible in search, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

Cross site scripting was possible in errors, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

Display of PHP's phpinfo() function was available to world, but only if this functionality had been enabled (defaults to off). This may leak some information about the host system.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 2.11.8.1-5+lenny7.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.7-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
