Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA880] DSA-880-1 phpmyadmin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-880-1 phpmyadmin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
phpmyadmin, a set of PHP-scripts to administrate MySQL over the WWW.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:
Andreas Kerber and Michal Cihar discovered several cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities in the error page and in the cookie
Stefan Esser discovered missing safety checks in grab_globals.php
that could permit a possible hacker to induce phpmyadmin to include an
arbitrary local file.
Tobias Klein discovered several cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities that could permit attackers to inject arbitrary
HTML or client-side scripting.
The version in the old stable distribution (woody) has probably its
own flaws and is not easily fixable without a full audit and patch
session. The easier way is to upgrade it from woody to sarge.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.2-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.4-pl3-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
