Package        : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-7251 CVE-2008-7252 CVE-2009-4605

Several 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-2008-7251

    phpMyAdmin may create a temporary directory, if the configured directory
    does not exist yet, with insecure filesystem permissions.

CVE-2008-7252

    phpMyAdmin uses predictable filenames for temporary files, which may
    lead to a local denial of service attack or privilege escalation.

CVE-2009-4605

    The setup.php script shipped with phpMyAdmin may unserialize untrusted
    data, allowing for cross site request forgery.


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version
phpmyadmin 2.11.8.1-5+lenny4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.2.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
