Description

phpMyAdmin team reports :

It was possible to create a bookmark which would be executed unintentionally by other users.

When the files README, ChangeLog or LICENSE have been removed from their original place (possibly by the distributor), the scripts used to display these files can show their full path, leading to possible further attacks.
