Debian: New phpmyadmin packages fix cross-site scripting

Omer Singer of the DigiTrust Group discovered several vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin, an application to administrate MySQL over the WWW. phpMyAdmin allows a remote attacker to inject arbitrary web script or HTML in the context of a logged in user's session (cross site scripting). phpMyAdmin, when accessed by a browser that does not URL-encode requests, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the query string. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
