 Package : phpmyadmin
 Date    : May 3, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated phpmyadmin package fixes security vulnerabilities:
 
 In some PHP versions, the preg_replace\(\) function can be tricked
 into executing arbitrary PHP code on the server. This is done by
 passing a crafted argument as the regular expression, containing a
 null byte. phpMyAdmin does not correctly sanitize an argument passed
 to preg_replace\(\) when using the Replace table prefix feature,
 opening the way to this vulnerability (CVE-2013-3238).
 
 phpMyAdmin can be configured to save an export file on the web server,
 via its SaveDir directive. With this in place, it's possible, either
 via a crafted filename template or a crafted table name, to save a
 double extension file like foobar.php.sql. In turn, an Apache webserver
 on which there is no definition for the MIME type sql (the default)
 will treat this saved file as a .php script, leading to remote code
 execution (CVE-2013-3239).
