    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.
    
    Upgrade instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:

    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
