    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool
    to administer MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-3696
    
      Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote attackers to
      inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted MySQL table name.
    
    CVE-2009-3697
    
      SQL injection vulnerability in the PDF schema generator functionality 
      allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands. This issue
      does not apply to the version in Debian 4.0 Etch.
    
    Additionally, extra fortification has been added for the web based setup.php
    script. Although the shipped web server configuration should ensure that
    this script is protected, in practice this turned out not always to be the
    case. The config.inc.php file is not writable anymore by the webserver user
    anymore. See README.Debian for details on how to enable the setup.php
    script if and when you need it.
    
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.9.1.1-13.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.11.8.1-5+lenny3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.2.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
