Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-08-05 20:31:40 UTC
From ${URL} :


A vulnerability has been reported in phpMyAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to 
conduct clickjacking attacks.

The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any 
validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform certain unspecified 
actions by tricking a user into clicking a specially crafted link via clickjacking.

The vulnerability is reported in versions 3.5.x.

Upgrade to version 4.0.5 or later.

Provided and/or discovered by:
The vendor credits Emanuel Bronshtein.

Original Advisory:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please say explicitly if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Looks like it's the end of the line for 3.5.x, according to the link.
