    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.
