    Omer Singer of the DigiTrust Group discovered several vulnerabilities in
    phpMyAdmin, an application to administrate MySQL over the WWW. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-5589
    
        phpMyAdmin allows a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script
        or HTML in the context of a logged in user's session (cross site
        scripting).
    
    CVE-2007-5386
    
        phpMyAdmin, when accessed by a browser that does not URL-encode
        requests, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script
        or HTML via the query string.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:2.6.2-3sarge6.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:2.9.1.1-6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:2.11.1.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
