Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in various components of phpMyAdmin, a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web:
## Issues described in upstream PMASA-2013-9 advisory ##
Remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page, resulting into arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of phpMyAdmin's user session when visited (non-persistent type) or submit a specially-crafted content into selected phpMyAdmin's forms, that when processed and subsequently visited by phpMyAdmin's user would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of phpMyAdmin's session (stored / persistent type).
## Issues described in upstream PMASA-2013-11 advisory ##:
A security flaw was found in the way JSON file to be retrieved version check functionality of phpMyAdmin, a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web, previously used to validate content of the retrieved JSON file. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted JSON format file that, when accepted (and processed) by the phpMyAdmin's user session would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of phpMyAdmin's user session.
