    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a
    tool to administrate MySQL databases over the web. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2008-4096
    
        Remote authenticated users could execute arbitrary code on the
        host running phpMyAdmin through manipulation of a script parameter.
    
    CVE-2008-3457
    
        Cross site scripting through the setup script was possible in
        rare circumstances.
    
    CVE-2008-3456
    
        Protection has been added against remote websites loading phpMyAdmin
        into a frameset.
    
    CVE-2008-3197
    
        Cross site request forgery allowed remote attackers to create a new
        database, but not perform any other action on it.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.9.1.1-8.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.11.8.1-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.

    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:
