Debian: New phpmyadmin packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. phpMyAdmin may create a temporary directory, if the configured directory does not exist yet, with insecure filesystem permissions. phpMyAdmin uses predictable filenames for temporary files, which may lead to a local denial of service attack or privilege escalation. The setup.php script shipped with phpMyAdmin may unserialize untrusted data, allowing for cross site request forgery. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
