Summary

The remote host is missing an update to phpmyadmin announced via advisory DSA 880-1. 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: CVE-2005-2869 Andreas Kerber and Michal Cihar discovered several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the error page and in the cookie login. CVE-2005-3300 Stefan Esser discovered missing safety checks in grab_globals.php that could allow an attacker to induce phpmyadmin to include an arbitrary local file. CVE-2005-3301 Tobias Klein discovered several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities that could allow 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.

Solution

Solution

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-pl1-1. We recommend that you upgrade your phpmyadmin package. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20880-1
