Debian: New phpmyadmin packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. Cross site scripting was possible in search, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. Cross site scripting was possible in errors, that allowed a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. Display of PHP’s phpinfo() function was available to world, but only if this functionality had been enabled (defaults to off). This may leak some information about the host system. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
