Debian: New phpmyadmin packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. The configuration setup script does not properly sanitise its output file, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via a crafted POST request. Various cross site scripting issues have been discovered that allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-3055 CVE-2010-3056

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool
to administer MySQL over the web. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2010-3055

 The configuration setup script does not properly sanitise its output
 file, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via
 a crafted POST request. In Debian, the setup tool is protected through
 Apache HTTP basic authentication by default.

CVE-2010-3056

 Various cross site scripting issues have been discovered that allow
 a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.11.8.1-5+lenny5.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems
have been fixed in version 3.3.5.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
