    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libphp-adodb, the 'adodb'
    database abstraction layer for PHP.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2006-0146
    
        Andreas Sandblad discovered that improper user input sanitisation
        results in a potential remote SQL injection vulnerability enabling
        an attacker to compromise applications, access or modify data, or
        exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database implementation.
        This requires the MySQL root password to be empty.  It is fixed by
        limiting access to the script in question.
    
    CVE-2006-0147
    
        A dynamic code evaluation vulnerability allows remote attackers to
        execute arbitrary PHP functions via the 'do' parameter.
    
    CVE-2006-0410
    
        Andy Staudacher discovered an SQL injection vulnerability due to
        insufficient input sanitising that allows remote attackers to
        execute arbitrary SQL commands.
    
    CVE-2006-0806
    
        GulfTech Security Research discovered multiple cross-site
        scripting vulnerabilities due to improper user-supplied input
        sanitisation.  Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to
        cause arbitrary scripts to be executed in the browser of an
        unsuspecting user's machine, or result in the theft of
        cookie-based authentication credentials.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.51-1.2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.52-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.72-0.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-adodb package.
