Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-5621

Michael Brooks discovered that phpMyAdmin, a tool to administrate MySQL
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.
