    This.

    This vulnerability is definitely critical and important, PhpMyAdmin is used very extensively. Not updating would just be devastating mistake... The researcher is talented for finding the vulnerability, and will have helped to keep hundreds of thousands (that's an understatement - more like millions) of services safer.

    Thank you for the head up. While I don't need to worry about updating this on a live server (I'm on shared hosting here), I will be updating my localhost (VM) install.
