Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-04-10 18:10:27 UTC
From ${URL} :

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way phpMyAdmin, a tool to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web, sanitized certain input when 
displaying GIS visualization(s). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, when visited would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the 
context of the phpMyAdmin user's session.
