    A vulnerability has been discovered in phppgadmin, a set of PHP
    scripts to administrate PostgreSQL over the WWW, that can lead to
    disclose sensitive information.  Successful exploitation requires that
    "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
    
    the old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.5.2-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.5.4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phppgadmin package.
