Malicious phpMyAdmin served from SourceForge mirror

Help Net Security:

A malicious version of the open source Web-based MySQL database administration tool phpMyAdmin has been discovered on one of the official mirror sites of SourceForge, the popular online code repository for free and open source software.

The phpMyAdmin team was notified of the issue by the Tencent Security Response Center, and they immediately put up a warning for its users. Then they proceeded to alert the team at SourceForge, who mounted an investigation into the matter.
