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


phpMyAdmin may create a temporary directory, if the configured directory does not exist yet, with insecure filesystem permissions.


phpMyAdmin uses predictable filenames for temporary files, which may lead to a local denial of service attack or privilege escalation.


The setup.php script shipped with phpMyAdmin may unserialize untrusted data, allowing for cross site request forgery.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version phpmyadmin

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package.
