Package : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-5589 CVE-2007-5386

Omer Singer of the DigiTrust Group discovered several vulnerabilities in
phpMyAdmin, an application to administrate MySQL over the WWW. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-5589

phpMyAdmin allows a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script
or HTML in the context of a logged in user's session (cross site
scripting).

CVE-2007-5386

phpMyAdmin, when accessed by a browser that does not URL-encode
requests, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script
or HTML via the query string.

For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4:2.6.2-3sarge6.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 4:2.9.1.1-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4:2.11.1.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
