    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin,
    an application to administrate MySQL over the WWW. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2008-1924
    
        Attackers with CREATE table permissions were allowed to read
        arbitrary files readable by the webserver via a crafted
        HTTP POST request.
    
    CVE-2008-1567
    
        The PHP session data file stored the username and password of
        a logged in user, which in some setups can be read by a local
        user.
    
    CVE-2008-1149
    
        Cross site scripting and SQL injection were possible by attackers
        that had permission to create cookies in the same cookie domain
        as phpMyAdmin runs in.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.9.1.1-7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4:2.11.5.2-1.
    
    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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
