    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-2011-4107
    
      The XML import plugin allowed a remote attacker to read arbitrary
      files via XML data containing external entity references.
    
    CVE-2011-1940, CVE-2011-3181
    
      Cross site scripting was possible in the table tracking feature,
      allowing a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4:3.3.7-7.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 4:3.4.7.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
