 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:158

 Package : phpmyadmin
 Date    : October 21, 2011
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in phpmyadmin:
 Missing sanitization on the table, column and index names leads to
 XSS vulnerabilities (CVE-2011-3181).
 Firstly, if a row contains javascript code, after inline editing this
 row and saving, the code is executed. Secondly, missing sanitization
 on the db, table and column names leads to XSS vulnerabilities.
 When the js_frame parameter of phpmyadmin.css.php is defined as an
 array, an error message shows the full path of this file, leading to
 possible further attacks (CVE-2011-3646).
 Crafted values entered in the setup interface can produce XSS; also,
 if the config directory exists and is writeable, the XSS payload can
 be saved to this directory (CVE-2011-4064).
 This upgrade provides the latest phpmyadmin version (3.4.6) to address
 these vulnerabilities.
