I was talking recently to an IT guy who mentioned that phpMyAdmin has too many security vulnerabilities for him to use. I'm not in IT so I don't follow this sort of thing much, but I do use the phpMyAdmin that's hosted here for some some web stuff.

What insight can the admin here provide on the security? I guess what has me most concerned is that it looks like the current version installed for shared hosting is 2.11.9.5, while the latest version is 3.4.5.

Thanks.

phpMyAdmin can be security concern, depending on how it's configured or setup.

I've heard this too about phpmyadmin. Just looking through it I can see there's so much going on that there must be quite a few ways for hackers to get in.

What alternatives are there guys?
