Description

This update solves a not yet clearly documented security issue with phpMyAdmin.

  • [interface] New field cannot be auto-increment and primary key - [dbi] Incorrect interpretation for some mysqli field flags - [display] part 1: do not display a TEXT utf8_bin as BLOB (fixed for mysqli extension only)
    • [interface] sanitize the after_field parameter, thanks to Norman Hippert - [structure] do not remove the BINARY attribute in drop-down - [session] Overriding session.hash_bits_per_character - [interface] sanitize the table comments in table print view, thanks to Norman Hippert - [general] Auto_Increment selected for TimeStamp by Default - [display] No tilde for InnoDB row counter when we know it for sure, thanks to Vladyslav Bakayev - dandy76 - [display] alt text causes duplicated strings - [interface] Cannot upload BLOB into existing row - [export] HTML in exports getting corrupted, thanks to Jason Judge - jasonjudge - [interface] BINARY not treated as BLOB: update/delete issues - [security] protection against XSS when register_globals is on and .htaccess has no effect, thanks to Tim Starling - [export] Firefox 3 and .sql.gz (corrupted); detect Gecko 1.9, thanks to Juergen Wind - [security] CSRF by manipulating the db, convcharset and collation_connection parameters, thanks to YGN Ethical Hacker Group http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/security.php?issue=P MASA-2008-5
