Synopsis :

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

Description :

The phpMyAdmin development team reports :

phpMyAdmin has a number of mechanisms to avoid a clickjacking attack,
however these mechanisms either work only in modern browser versions,
or can be bypassed.

'We have no solution for 3.5.x, due to the proposed solution requiring
JavaScript. We don't want to introduce a dependency to JavaScript in
the 3.5.x family.'
