    Masako Oono discovered that phpMyAdmin, a web-based administration
    interface for MySQL, insufficiently sanitises input allowing a
    remote attacker to gather sensitive data through cross site scripting,
    provided that the user uses the Internet Explorer web browser.
    
    This update also fixes a regression introduced in DSA 1641, that
    broke changing of the language and encoding in the login screen.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.9.1.1-9.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.11.8.1-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
