Debian Security Advisory DSA-1675-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-4326

Masako Oono discovered that phpMyAdmin, a web-based administration
interface for MySQL, insufficiently sanitises input allowing a
remote attacker to gather sensitive data through cross site scripting,
provided that the user uses the Internet Explorer web browser.

This update also fixes a regression introduced in DSA 1641, that
broke changing of the language and encoding in the login screen.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:2.9.1.1-9.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:2.11.8.1-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
