    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-2010-4329
    
      Cross site scripting was possible in search, that allowed
      a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2010-4480
    
      Cross site scripting was possible in errors, that allowed
      a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2010-4481
    
      Display of PHP's phpinfo() function was available to world, but only
      if this functionality had been enabled (defaults to off). This may
      leak some information about the host system.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.11.8.1-5+lenny7.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems
    have been fixed in version 3.3.7-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
