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 2.6.2-3sarge2.

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.
