As usual there are many fixes and security enhancements (no eval, no inline js).

The security fix is for an issue that was introduced in 4.8.0, so an update for Mageia 6 isn't needed.

true David. I should better put it in backports.

Suggested advisory:

Backported phpmyadmin package to the latest release.

This backport has some security enhancements, as php does not need to have eval enabled. As all JS-inline scripts have been removed, it is save to turn on Content Security Policy for phpmyadmin, which adds additional protection against XSS vulnerabilities.

Updated packages in core/backports_testing:

After some testing, I have to refuse my own backport request.

Resolution: (none) => WONTFIX
