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.
