    The security update for phpPgAdmin in DSA-1693-1 caused a regression in
    modifying table fields. This updates corrects that flaw. For reference
    the original advisory follows.
    
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpPgAdmin, a tool
    to administrate PostgreSQL database over the web. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-2865
    
        Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML via the server parameter.
    
    CVE-2007-5728
    
        Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML via PHP_SELF.
    
    CVE-2008-5587
    
        Directory traversal vulnerability allows remote attackers to read
        arbitrary files via _language parameter.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.1-3.1etch2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phppgadmin package.
    
    Upgrade instructions

    wget url

    dpkg -i file.deb

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:

    Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
