Package        : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-3197 CVE-2008-3456 CVE-2008-3457 CVE-2008-4096

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:

CVE-2008-4096

    Remote authenticated users could execute arbitrary code on the
    host running phpMyAdmin through manipulation of a script parameter.

CVE-2008-3457

    Cross site scripting through the setup script was possible in
    rare circumstances.

CVE-2008-3456

    Protection has been added against remote websites loading phpMyAdmin
    into a frameset.

CVE-2008-3197

    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 4:2.9.1.1-8.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:2.11.8.1-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
