    Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
    phpmyadmin, a set of PHP-scripts to administrate MySQL over the WWW.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CAN-2005-2869
    
        Andreas Kerber and Michal Cihar discovered several cross-site
        scripting vulnerabilities in the error page and in the cookie
        login.
    
    CVE-2005-3300
    
        Stefan Esser discovered missing safety checks in grab_globals.php
        that could allow an attacker to induce phpmyadmin to include an
        arbitrary local file.
    
    CVE-2005-3301
    
        Tobias Klein discovered several cross-site scripting
        vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to inject arbitrary
        HTML or client-side scripting.
    
    The version in the old stable distribution (woody) has probably its
    own flaws and is not easily fixable without a full audit and patch
    session.  The easier way is to upgrade it from woody to sarge.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.2-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.4-pl1-1.
    
    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.orig.tar.gz
          Size/MD5 checksum:  2654418 05e33121984824c43d94450af3edf267
    
      Architecture independent components:
    
        http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/p/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin_2.6.2-3sarge1_all.deb
          Size/MD5 checksum:  2768208 7dddcca1746dfd9c2493fcbb82d7b882
    
    
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
