    The phpmyadmin update in DSA 1207 introduced a regression. This update
    corrects this flaw. For completeness, the original advisory text below:
     
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a
    program to administrate MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2005-3621
    
        CRLF injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to conduct
        HTTP response splitting attacks.
    
    CVE-2005-3665
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) HTTP_HOST
        variable and (2) various scripts in the libraries directory that
        handle header generation.
    
    CVE-2006-1678
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
        attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via scripts in the
        themes directory.
    
    CVE-2006-2418
    
        A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote attackers
        to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the db parameter of
        footer.inc.php.
    
    CVE-2006-5116
    
        A remote attacker could overwrite internal variables through the
        _FILES global variable.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.2-3sarge3.
    
    For the upcoming stable release (etch) and unstable distribution (sid)
    these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.0.3-1.
    
    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 update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge

      Source archives:
    
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin_2.6.2-3sarge3.dsc
          Size/MD5 checksum:      604 32ee16f4370604bc150d93c5676fface

          Size/MD5 checksum:    38520 f27c4b99bbdb3dc13fb71aef99749247
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin_2.6.2.orig.tar.gz
          Size/MD5 checksum:  2654418 05e33121984824c43d94450af3edf267
    
      Architecture independent components:
    
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin_2.6.2-3sarge3_all.deb
          Size/MD5 checksum:  2769182 00f14fb52a14546e92ece84c16cd249f
    
    
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
