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.
