Some vulnerabilities have been reported in phpMyAdmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed to some parameter in libraries/auth/cookie.auth.lib.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to users in the cookie-based login panel. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.
2) Input passed to the "error" parameter in error.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.
Solution: The vulnerabilities have been fixed in version 2.6.4-rc1.
