    over the web, performs insufficient input sanitising allowing a user
    assisted remote attacker to execute code on the webserver.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    2.9.1.1-10.
    
    For the testing distribution (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid), this
    problem has been fixed in version 2.11.8.1-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
