Synopsis
========

phpMyAdmin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Background
==========

phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the
administration of MySQL databases from a web-browser.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-db/phpmyadmin     < 2.6.0_p3                      >= 2.6.0_p3

Description
===========

Cedric Cochin has discovered multiple cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities in phpMyAdmin. These vulnerabilities can be exploited
through the PmaAbsoluteUri parameter, the zero_rows parameter in
read_dump.php, the confirm form, or an error message generated by the
internal phpMyAdmin parser.

Impact
======

By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker can inject and
execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's
browser.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.0_p3"
