Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Secunia report :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin, which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed via unspecified parameters to files in /libraries is not
properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be
exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that 'register_globals' is enabled
and support for '.htaccess' files is disabled.
