Package        : phpmyadmin
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-6942 CVE-2006-6944 CVE-2007-1325 CVE-2007-1395 CVE-2007-2245

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


    The PMA_ArrayWalkRecursive function in libraries/common.lib.php
    does not limit recursion on arrays provided by users, which allows
    context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (web
    server crash) via an array with many dimensions.

    This issue affects only the stable distribution (Etch).


    Incomplete blacklist vulnerability in index.php allows remote
    attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks by
    injecting arbitrary JavaScript or HTML in a (1) db or (2) table
    parameter value followed by an uppercase </SCRIPT> end tag,
    which bypasses the protection against lowercase </script>.

    This issue affects only the stable distribution (Etch).


    Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
    attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via (1) the
    fieldkey parameter to browse_foreigners.php or (2) certain input
    to the PMA_sanitize function.


    Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote
    attackers to inject arbitrary HTML or web script via (1) a comment
    for a table name, as exploited through (a) db_operations.php,
    (2) the db parameter to (b) db_create.php, (3) the newname parameter
    to db_operations.php, the (4) query_history_latest,
    (5) query_history_latest_db, and (6) querydisplay_tab parameters to
    (c) querywindow.php, and (7) the pos parameter to (d) sql.php.

    This issue affects only the oldstable distribution (Sarge).


    phpMyAdmin allows remote attackers to bypass Allow/Deny access rules
    that use IP addresses via false headers.

    This issue affects only the oldstable distribution (Sarge).

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in

For the old stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.2-3sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.10.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin packages.
