Debian: Security update for phpmyadmin

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpMyAdmin, a tool to administer MySQL over the web. The XML import plugin allowed a remote attacker to read arbitrary files via XML data containing external entity references. Cross site scripting was possible in the table tracking feature, allowing a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
