 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:198
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : phpmyadmin
 Date    : December 31, 2011
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in phpmyadmin:
 
 Importing a specially-crafted XML file which contains an XML entity
 injection permits to retrieve a local file (limited by the privileges
 of the user running the web server) (CVE-2011-4107).
 
 Using crafted database names, it was possible to produce XSS in the
 Database Synchronize and Database rename panels. Using an invalid
 and crafted SQL query, it was possible to produce XSS when editing
 a query on a table overview panel or when using the view creation
 dialog. Using a crafted column type, it was possible to produce XSS
 in the table search and create index dialogs (CVE-2011-4634).
 
 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-2011-4782).
 
 Using crafted url parameters, it was possible to produce XSS
 on the export panels in the server, database and table sections
 (CVE-2011-4780).
 
 This upgrade provides the latest phpmyadmin version (3.4.9) to address
 these vulnerabilities.
