                     CVE-2016-5739
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in phpMyAdmin, the web-based
    MySQL administration interface.
    
    CVE-2016-1927
    
        The suggestPassword function relied on a non-secure random number
        generator which makes it easier for remote attackers to guess
        generated passwords via a brute-force approach.
    
    CVE-2016-2039
    
        CSRF token values were generated by a non-secure random number
        genrator, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
        restrictions by predicting a value.
    
    CVE-2016-2040
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-2041
    
        phpMyAdmin does not use a constant-time algorithm for comparing
        CSRF tokens, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass
        intended access restrictions by measuring time differences.
    
    CVE-2016-2560
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-2561
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-5099
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-5701
    
        For installations running on plain HTTP, phpMyAdmin allows remote
        attackers to conduct BBCode injection attacks against HTTP sessions
        via a crafted URI.
    
    CVE-2016-5705
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-5706
    
        phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
        (resource consumption) via a large array in the scripts parameter.
    
    CVE-2016-5731
    
        A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-5733
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2016-5739
    
        A specially crafted Transformation could leak information which
        a remote attacker could use to perform cross site request forgeries.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:4.2.12-2+deb8u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:4.6.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
