    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-2010-3055
    
      The configuration setup script does not properly sanitise its output
      file, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via
      a crafted POST request. In Debian, the setup tool is protected through
      Apache HTTP basic authentication by default.
    
    CVE-2010-3056
    
      Various cross site scripting issues have been discovered that allow
      a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.11.8.1-5+lenny5.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems
    have been fixed in version 3.3.5.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
