The security update for phpPgAdmin in DSA-1693-1 caused a regression in
modifying table fields. This updates corrects that flaw. For reference
the original advisory follows.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpPgAdmin, a tool
to administrate PostgreSQL database over the web. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


      Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
      arbitrary web script or HTML via the server parameter.


      Cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject
      arbitrary web script or HTML via PHP_SELF.


      Directory traversal vulnerability allows remote attackers to read
      arbitrary files via _language parameter.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.1-3.1etch2.

We recommend that you upgrade your phppgadmin package.

Upgrade instructions
- - --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
