It was possible to conduct a XSS attack using error messages in PHP backtrace.
We consider this vulnerability to be non critical.
Additional steps from administrator are required to actually exploit this issue (phpMyAdmin error reporting and collection needs to be enabled, what is against recommendation for production setup).
