<description>
<p>
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.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker can inject and
execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's
browser.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.6.0_p3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
