Debian: Security update for phpmyadmin

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administrate MySQL over the web. A possible session manipulation in Swekey authentication, a possible code injection in setup script, in case session variables are compromised, a regular expression quoting issue in Synchronize code, a possible directory traversal in MIME-type transformation, a cross site scripting in table Print view when the attacker can create crafted table names, and a possible superglobal and local variables manipulation in Swekey authentication have all been fixed. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
