Description

Phpmyadmin, a web administration tool for MySQL, had several Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities were reported.

CVE-2016-5731

With a specially crafted request, it is possible to trigger an XSS attack through the example OpenID authentication script.

CVE-2016-5733

Several XSS vulnerabilities were found with the Transformation feature. Also a vulnerability was reported allowing a specifically- configured MySQL server to execute an XSS attack. This particular attack requires configuring the MySQL server log_bin directive with the payload.

CVE-2016-5739

A vulnerability was reported where a specially crafted Transformation could be used to leak information including the authentication token. This could be used to direct a CSRF attack against a user.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4:3.4.11.1-2+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
