Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
phpmyadmin :

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the
PMA_getHtmlForActionLinks function in libraries/structure.lib.php in
phpMyAdmin 4.2.x before 4.2.6 allows remote authenticated users to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted table comment that
is improperly handled during construction of a database structure page
(CVE-2014-4954).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the PMA_TRI_getRowForList
function in libraries/rte/rte_list.lib.php in phpMyAdmin 4.0.x before
4.0.10.1, 4.1.x before 4.1.14.2, and 4.2.x before 4.2.6 allows remote
authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a
crafted trigger name that is improperly handled on the database
triggers page (CVE-2014-4955).

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in js/functions.js
in phpMyAdmin 4.0.x before 4.0.10.1, 4.1.x before 4.1.14.2, and 4.2.x
before 4.2.6 allow remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web
script or HTML via a crafted (1) table name or (2) column name that is
improperly handled during construction of an AJAX confirmation message
(CVE-2014-4986).
