Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200906-03
(phpMyAdmin: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin:
Greg Ose discovered that the setup script does not sanitize input
properly, leading to the injection of arbitrary PHP code into the
configuration file (CVE-2009-1151).
Manuel Lopez Gallego and
Santiago Rodriguez Collazo reported that data from cookies used in the
'Export' page is not properly sanitized (CVE-2009-1150).

Impact :

A remote unauthorized attacker could exploit the first vulnerability to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
phpMyAdmin and conduct Cross-Site Scripting attacks using the second
vulnerability.

Workaround :

Removing the 'scripts/setup.php' file protects you from CVE-2009-1151.
