    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpPgAdmin, a tool
    to administrate PostgreSQL database over the web. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-2865
    
        Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML via the server parameter.
    
    CVE-2007-5728
    
        Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML via PHP_SELF.
    
    CVE-2008-5587
    
        Directory traversal vulnerability allows remote attackers to read
        arbitrary files via _language parameter.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.1-3.1etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.1-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phppgadmin package.
