Comment 8 Tomas Hoger 2008-12-17 14:21:34 UTC
2 CVE ids were assigned to this PMSA:
  http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2008/12/17/4

CVE-2008-5621:
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in phpMyAdmin 2.11.x
before 2.11.9.4 and 3.x before 3.1.1.0 allows remote attackers to
perform unauthorized actions as the administrator via a link or IMG
tag to tbl_structure.php with a modified table parameter. NOTE: this
can be leveraged to conduct SQL injection attacks and execute
arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-5622:
Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in
phpMyAdmin 2.11.x before 2.11.9.4 and 3.x before 3.1.1.0 allow remote
attackers to conduct SQL injection attacks via unknown vectors related
to the table parameter, a different vector than CVE-2008-5621.

Though, it does not seem that there are actually 2 separate issues.  Second one was apparently assigned to the following change mentioned in the ChangeLog:
  - [security] possible XSRF on several pages

But this entry was added as not quite clear description for SQL injection that got CVE-2008-5621, as can be checked in the upstream commit:
http://phpmyadmin.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/phpmyadmin?view=rev&revision=12100
