Package        : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-3055 CVE-2010-3056

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.

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.
