    The update in DSA 2097 for phpMyAdmin did not correctly apply the intended
    changes, thereby not completely addressing the vulnerabilities. Updated
    packages now fix the issues described in the original advisory text below.
    
    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+lenny6.
    
    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.

      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin_2.11.8.1-5+lenny6_all.deb
        Size/MD5 checksum:  2886448 dcfc410cc5bcebc61bb32e33662e7fd3
    
    
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
