    It was discovered that phpLDAPadmin, a web based interface for administering
    LDAP servers, doesn't sanitize an internal variable, which allows remote
    attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files.
    
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.1.0.5-6+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.1.0.7-1.1
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.
    
    Upgrade instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
