The phpMyAdmin team is pleased to announce the release of phpMyAdmin
version 4.8.2. Among other bug fixes, this contains an important
security update and it is highly recommended that all users upgrade

The urgent vulnerability allows an authenticated attacker to exploit a
phpMyAdmin feature to show and potentially execute files on the server.
PHP open_basedir restrictions mitigate the effect of this flaw. For
further details, see the PMASA announcement

A second flaw was also fixed allowing an attacker to use a specially
crafted database name to trick a user in to executing a cross-site
scripting (XSS) attack in the Designer feature

In addition to the security fixes, this release also includes these bug
fixes as part of our regular release cycle:

* WHERE 0 clause causes a fatal error
* Fix missing "INDEX" icon
