Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administrate MySQL databases over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Remote authenticated users could execute arbitrary code on the host running phpMyAdmin through manipulation of a script parameter.
Cross site scripting through the setup script was possible in rare circumstances.
Protection has been added against remote websites loading phpMyAdmin into a frameset.
Cross site request forgery allowed remote attackers to create a new database, but not perform any other action on it.
For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 4:126.96.36.199-8.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4:188.8.131.52-2.
